    Your piano would have been made in 1905. This is what the Pierce Piano Atlas has to say about the company:

    "Royal, Krell & Starr made by Starr Piano Co (Richmond, Indiana) after 1927. Prior to 1927 was controlled by Werner Industries, Cincinnati."

    Royal Piano serial numbers are listed from 1895 up to 1949. Seemingly, Albert Krell resigned from his company in Cincinnati in 1905. Not quite sure what the connection is between Royal, Krell, and Werner Industries.
