The Leckerling Piano Company was established in 1886 by Mr. William Leckerling. The Leckerling factory and offices were located at 1086 – 1088 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, NY. The Leckerling Piano Company was a smaller manufacturer compared to other New York firms and they specialized in building a smaller variety of well-made upright pianos.
After the turn of the 20th Century, Leckerling was absorbed into The Wissner Piano Company and small grand pianos and player pianos were added to the Leckerling product line. Wissner continued to build pianos under the Leckerling brand name until going out of business in about 1942 due to World War II.
Both Wissner and Leckerling were known to build high-grade, expensive pianos. Surviving Leckerling pianos that have come through our restoration shop have been of consistently good quality and craftsmanship overall.
