The particular August Förster grand piano that can be acquired has been the possession of our family for +20 years.

In the family’s possession the August Förster grand piano was in the first years used sporadically when receiving visiting pianists as guests in our home. The overall size of the grand piano is approx. 152 cm x 162 cm.

The later approx. 10 years the grand piano has served as adding style to the headquarters of an international company located in Skive in the western part of Jutland, Denmark. Here The August Förster has been played sporadically by professional pianists on different festive occasions.

As pre-owned August Förster grand pianos on the market are being few in numbers and subject to connoisseurs’ appreciation a 'market price' is impossible to establish.

Due to urgency it has thus been decided to sell off the grand piano for a symbolic price of only DKK 25,000.
