Blüthner pianos were established by Julius Blüthner in Leipzig, 1853, and the company remains a family run business to this day . By 1900 they had become the largest piano manufacturer in Germany, producing some 5,000 instruments annually. They gained a worldwide reputation for manufacturing the finest, hand-crafted pianos available - a serious rival to Steinway! - and this example is no exception. It has a wonderfully rich and attractive tone which has depth as well as a resonant clarity of sound. The action has been completely reconditioned and it has new hammers and dampers. The newly French polished case is well-proportioned and a handsome piece of furniture, with finely crafted panels and some elegant features. As a musical instrument it is superb.
