Hello, new to this forum. Hope I can post this.
Does anyone know a brand named “Otten”?
Inside the piano it says: Otten Possneck.
Possneck is a city in Germany.
Could not find the serial number without moving the very heavy piano ....
Will be glad to get some info on this brand.

You might want to post some pictures of the piano and of its insides.

I don't know anything about the make, but I love the detail on the plate, especially the "O" in Otten and the "P" in Pößneck.

Yeah, very cool!

I'm guessing it was built for export, since the ß is actually "ss." I put ß in because that's what's on the map, but I just noticed it's not actually that way on the frame.

Thank you!
When we bought this piano I was told that it was made in czech republic but the city Possneck is actually in Germany (at least today).
I wish I knew more about this maker.
