This upright piano was built by Heinrich Roloff circa 1840s serial number 499. Because of its shape and the opening by the pedals, it is usually referred to as a “dog kennel” upright. The factory was in Neubrandenburg, Germany. We know of a few similar Roloff Dog Kennel pianos. One, with serial number 361, is in Frankfurt, Germany in the Bezirksmuseum. The other, with serial number 1167, is in Bydgoszcz, Poland at the Filharmonia Pomorska.
