This week we consigned three pianos from the same house, all had been fully rebuilt or refurbished and all were leading makes of the piano world. The Broadwood square piano was the one that got us talking. The September 15th 2016 auction is one not to be missed if you have an interested in period and antique instruments…

The Square piano was first seen in London around 1766 and were as novelty then as they are today. They have a certain charm that is undeniable and when played and in good condition they have a very delicate & sweet sound. In the early days Harpsichord players were very fond of the square piano due to the similarities in timbre that both instruments offered.

The early examples were so small and compact that they could be classed as early portable keyboards! And don’t laugh as this was practiced!

The novelty aspect of square pianos created a fresh trend almost immediately and the famous composers were not going to miss out either. Johann Christian Bach, Gluck, Paisiello, Cimarosa, and Clementi are some of the composers who owned examples.

Broadwood square pianos are undeniably famous however, they are becoming rarer to find. If you search around you can still find these instruments but unfortunately they are generally in poor condition and normally used as pieces of furniture in larger houses.

This Broadwood square piano that has just been consigned into our September 15th piano auction in Manchester has been fully rebuilt and the rebuilders have done a respectable job.

Make: Broadwood

Model: Square Piano

Date: 1842

Keyboard Compass: 6 octaves ( F to F)

Finish: Mahogany French polish

Auction Est: £400 – £600

 

A John Broadwood square piano that has been fully rebuilt and re-polished in a mahogany French polish case, raised on turned and fluted legs. This instrument has been sensitively restored with a nice original ivory keyboard. The restoration work on this instrument has been careful and thorough throughout and is fitted with a sustain pedal. This instrument is in full playing condition.
