Longman & Broderip Square Piano

<< >>
Description (Brief)
This square piano was made by Longman & Broderip in London, England around 1795-1805. The inscription on the name board may be true but is certainly not original, probably stenciled on the paper label. It is completely unlike any authentic Longman & Broderip label, of which there are a great many in existence. This piano has a compass of FF-c4, an English double action, double-strings throughout, with tuning pins on the right, 1 pedal: dampers, wood frame, and a mahogany (?) case.
