Carl Ecke was a German piano brand from 19th - 20th century. The production started in Poznan, in 1843. At first only grand pianos were made by this company, but in 1870 it started making upright pianos as well.[1] The company was then expanded and in 1873 moved to Berlin,[2] and later also to Dresden.[3]

The signature on the pianos changed over the years:

  • Carl Ecke, Posen (until about 1890)
  • Carl Ecke, Berlin & Posen (Berlin u. Posen) (in 1870s, 1890s, and about 1900)
  • Carl Ecke, Berlin, Dresden, Posen (in 1890s, also about 1908)
  • Carl Ecke, Berlin – Dresden (after 1895)
  • Carl Ecke, Berlin (in 1885, after 1905, and regularly in the 1930s).[4]
