Broadwood 1841

This handsome piano, number 53127, was made in 1841.  It is now in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, but the Broadwood Porter's Book tells us that it was despatched on Friday 31st July in that year to James Summers, Esq., of Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire.  It left Pickle Herring Wharf in the London docks on board the sailing ship 'City of Norwich'.  

It does seem to be in exceptionally good condition, with a clean and tidy interior.  By this date, pianos were robustly built (= heavy!) and structural problems are rare.  This piano was cherished by its owner, who sadly passed away last year.  

A piano stool is included.

As we said, the piano is now in Marlow, Buckinghamshire. 

The price is £650.
