Broadwood c. 1836 

This handsome Broadwood, in good condition, needed to find a new home as soon as possible, and was generously being offered free of charge.

The mahogany case features the extended fall-board, which  gave a symmetrical appearance when closed.  Happily, since the photograph was taken, the pedal has been found - good news, because matching assemblies are not easy to make.

The piano was professionally restored by Gordon and Adrian Willford  in 1980, and the certificate is with the piano.

Perhaps it is time for a little cleaning now!  But I just love that black and gold swirly enamel on the string-plate - another luxury detail.
