Raven & Bacon (also listed as Bacon & Raven) was part of one of the oldest and most historical American piano manufacturers. Originally started in 1789 by the famous business tycoon John Jacob Astor along with piano makers Robert Stodart and William Dubois, the firm was originally known as Dubois & Stodart until 1836. In 1836, Stodart retired and George Bacon joined the firm. In 1841, Dubois left the firm and Bacon was joined by brothers Richard & Thomas Raven, and the firm’s name was changed to Bacon & Raven.
