Sorry but I would not be able to find out the brand by serial or appearance. Piano designs were very similar and there have been many thousands of companies that have come and gone. I can help with valuation if you would like that.

There’s no way to search a piano bank by the serial number? If the answe is still no, i do not think I should have to pay $32 for not receiving a good answer.
Musical Instrument Appraiser: Tyler, MM, AAGO, Musician/Appraiser replied 8 months ago
Correct. There is no “piano bank” and all piano companies started with the same numerical sequence. Almost all piano companies would therefore have a serial “12727”. So in this case it is not a lack of a good answer, as you say, just that the answer is not possible. We do piano appraisals here as our focus. You’re welcome to contact customer service if you don’t want to continue.
