Thanks for your question Ursula. My name is***** will be a pleasure to help you. I will ask you to complete the star rating and payment process after I have completed the question for you. The only entry I have found so far in the record is that J.H. Ehlert were based in Copenhagen, Denmark from 1867, but there are no serial number records to fully date your piano. Has your piano been regularly tuned and maintained? Have any of the internal mechanics been replaced or restored over the years or is it all still as originally built? If you have any pictures of the outside of your piano but also of the internal mechanics which you could attach on here using the paperclip or the +Add button on the menu bar in the reply section, that would be very helpful to establishing the age and condition of the main mechanical parts.
