They were an old firm that made pianos in Berlin between 1860 and 1952. The pianos were of high quality. Yours is likely in great need of rebuiling, which presents a problem since the the cost of rebuilding far outweighs the value of the piano.

oh wow so they're quite a good brand. yeah it's pretty much falling apart says the tuner- said it'll last me about another 2 years cos something's coming loose or something i don't know... i'll probably just get a new one rather than fix it. actually i think i'm going to turn it into some form of artwork- paint the whole thing!! hehe we'll see...

I had a carl ecke made in 1862 in Israel in the 1970's. It was so worn out the middle hammer looked like they were cut in a half. But it had a great base. there were also remnants from where you put the candles for light.
