This is a rare and early forte-piano by maker Carl Radecker of Hamburg, circa about 1830.  Carl Radecker appears to have been a small, family owned firm during the early 19th Century.  This lovely instrument is made of fine quality craftsmanship and materials, a reflection of the superior quality that went into these small, family-owned first.  Only the best quality was good enough to display the family name.

This piano is made in the elegant Empire Revival style and is made of exotic vertical grain mahogany wood.  The instrument is a small and early piece with leather hammers and thing, delicate strings; the tone quality is remenecent of music heard in Jane Austin films and other period movies.  The piano is being internally restored and refinished to like new condition.  A matching piano stool is included.
