Grove Square Piano

Description (Brief)
This square piano was made by D.B. Grove in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania around 1833-1835. Since D.B. Grove signed his piano with only his initials, it is not certain whether he was the Daniel Grove known as a cabinetmaker in Philadelphia in 1829. This piano has a compass of FF-f4, single action, leather hammers, single-strings for first 8 notes, the rest double-strings, 2 pedals: buff and dampers, an iron string plate frame in the shape of an eagle, and a wood case.
