Broadwood 1819 - Sold

This piano is number 22899.  It has been partly restored, and just needs a set of new strings and the work to be completed.  

The hammer coverings are original, and in exceptionally good condition, as is the soundboard.

For a few years around 1820, and earlier in the case of the six-octave pianos with a downwards extension to CC, the treble tuning-pins have been moved from the back to the right-hand end; this makes tuning easier, as the pins are less crowded.  This is one of the earlier 5½-octave  examples with this arrangement.

All the original tuning-pins and  dampers are there, and the treble hammers are ready to be put in place; ensuring accuracy will be easier when the strings are fitted.
