Hello piano friends,

So,i Will tell you something you wont believe it,
Last week i could exchange my motocycle for a very Old piano.
Its a wel playing grand piano.
Its a Gebruder Knake from Munster Germany.
But further i know nothing.
My first piano was a Paul Feist,stil have it
My second piano is a Eterna,stil have it.
And now i have the grand,
But i dont know what age,but that's not important, i know that the factory closed in 1903 so its Old.
Where do i keep attention at in case of restauration.

Knake was a well-respected maker. Here's some information that will allow you to estimate the age of your piano:

Knake serial numbers

There's a thread here with some photos of a very handsome Knake grand and some information about the history of the firm:

Gebrüder Knake, Münster, Grand Piano

In that same thread you'll find some tips about restauration.
