This may not help, however just this Sunday I attended a concert at Ripon Colleg (Ripon, WI) and the concert grand used in the recital hall had an unusual name - Hornung & Moller (the "O" in Moller has the slanted line through it like vowels in some of the Scandinavian languages). When I got home I looked it up in the Pierce Piano Atlas and it said the company was from Copenhagen, Denmark. How the piano got to this small college in a small town in Wisconsin is a mystery to me, but I'm sure someone knows the story.

I noticed that the keyboard was an 85 keys rather than the usual 88 - that may be a sign of the age of the instrument.

At first when I saw the photo it looked like a Minx, but they are from England.

Hopefully someone more knowledgeable than I will respond to your post.

Seems to be a Brodr Jorgensen(Brødr Jørgensen) from Copenhagen in Denmark. They gave up own production in 1980. Do you have a serial number? I have one with the numer 10.569 which was made in 1965.

Found this with a simple Google search:

Press the link below for a bigger picture of it. Looks a lot like the one in the picture at the beginning of this thread, apart from the distinctive color!
