Broadwood 1836

This Broadwood is number 47722, and dates from 1836, the year before the coronation of the young Queen Victoria.  It is therefore one of the last to be by appointment to King William IV and Queen Caroline.

It has belonged to its loving owner for many years, but she is now 'downsizing', and has to let it go.  

As we would expect, it has the iron string-plate and reinforcing bar, which contribute to a robust structure and good tuning stability.  Unfortunately it has no pedal, and there is some damage to the nameboard frets. The lid is present but loose.  Otherwise the seller assures us that it has a good sound.

At least some of the strings appear to be original.

The piano is in Abergavenny, Wales; the price is £200.  Please contact Gillian Stevens
