Stodart & Broadwood fortepianos

Pictured on the right is a Broadwood Grand Fortepiano, makers number 3448, built in 1806.
At the present time, it is not in playing condition.
It will enter my workshop upon the completion of the restoration of yet another fortepiano, a Stodart Compensator Grand, makers number 7388, circa 1825-1830, pictured to the left of the Broadwood.
Simultaneously, I will continue with the building of my fourth harpsichord, a double transposing single, FF-f''', 8x8x4/buff.
