Douglas Hollick is a well-known harpsichord player with many recordings to his credit, and he is also an accomplished builder. He made this fine double-manual instrument for a client in 1979; it is based on the 1638 Ruckers in the Edinburgh collection. It was carefully maintained by the original owner, and in the early 2000's it was returned to Douglas' workshop for repainting and re-gilding. It was regularly played until shortly before the owner passed away recently.
The harpsichord is in North London, and Douglas is handling the sale on behalf of the family; he will be happy to provide more information. Offers around £5,000 please.
