This instrument is an important and rare specimen of a Danish piano. It has an ornately decorated cast iron frame, highlighted by gorgeous gold barring inside.
Conrad Christian Hornung was originally a hat-maker but, after being dissatisfied with this trade at an early age, turned his hand to piano making.
Hornung trained in Germany and in 1800 returned to Denmark to open his own piano workshop. By 1843 C.C. Hornung had been appointed purveyor to the Danish royal house.
In 1850, Hornung passed the instrumentmaking workshop into the hands of Frederik Möller, who continued to work under the name of Hornung & Möller.
The company produced pianos until its closure in 1972. Hornung & Möller pianos are renowned for their gorgeous appearance and beautiful sound – your support will ensure this extraordinarily wonderful instrument is once again
