Broadwood 1817   FtGH

This hansome piano is being offered Free to Good Home as a restoration project.  

The brass-inlaid rosewood nameboard and the ivories look good.  As this piano is being offered as an unconditional gift, it is not necessary for it to be registered for exemption under the UK Ivory Act 2018.

When well-restored, a Regency Broadwood is a lovely piano.  This one does need a lot of work, but I believe it has that potential. It has lost its front inner pair of legs and the pedal, but as far as we can see, it is internally virtually complete and in undisturbed original condition.  From a restorer's point of view such benign neglect is infinitely preferable to the results of clumsy intervention.

The piano is in Swanage, Dorset.  Please contact Channa Clein
