Julius Blüthner ( 1824 to 1910) started the Julius Blüthner Pianofortefabrik in Leipzig, Germany in 1853. During World War II, the factory was burned to the ground. It waslater rebuilt and reopened at the same location in Leipzig. Today the company is run by the great-great-grandson of Julius Bluthner. Blüthner pianos are known around the world for their extremely high quality and degree of workmanship. Blüthner pianos are still mostly handmade instruments, and it is estimated that the total number of Blüthners ever manufactured is around 150,000 instruments.
