Collard & Collard 1844

The number on this handsome Collard & Collard is 40964, which indicates a date of 1844.  It was an advanced piano for that date, with a 6½-octave compass from CC.

The pedal is detached, but present.

The case is made from beautiful flame-mahogany: this was a special piano.  The nameboard is rosewood.

We see the full-length soundboard, and substantially-intact original condition.

Iron string-plate and reinforcing bar. These pianos are heavier than the earlier ones, but unlikely to suffer structural problems!  The string-plate also aids tuning stability.

The internal fretwork (unusually) is intact.  And another glimpse of that beautiful mahogany!

This piano is in Worthing, Sussex.  The price is a very modest £100.  But it is at the same location as the c. 1812 Broadwood in the previous entry, and the owner might consider a concession for the sale of both together.  Please contact Chris Windross   cwindross29@gmail.com
