what is its city of origin ?  should be labeled right on its front, or inside on the plate.  is w.streicher exactly how its name is given and spelled.  there were far, far more numerous piano makers before 1930 than there are today (quite a few brand names today get churned out by a handful of asian manufacturers), and archives or records vary quite a bit in different places.

there is no year or place of manufacturing anywhere on the piano or in it, just a serial number , the name is spelled on the piano like "W. STREICHER" with all capital letters.
i've read samick bought the brand name of w. streicher and now uses it on it's pianos, but couldn't find anything meaningful about it.

w.streicher is not listed with samick's other brands on their site.  there are some older ads from shops in England for modern w.streicher pianos describing them as east german but no other information given.
