Gone to a good home
This Collard and Collard from the 1870s is in remarkable condition for its age.
Its hinges in the mechanism are made from velum (deer skin) which are all (apart from two unimportant dampers) totally complete. It has a walnut case which is truly beautifull. At the moment it is a semitone below concert pitch but, as there is no rust on the strings, could be pulled up to concert pitch, if needed.
This piano is ideal for a pianist who will play delicately and enjoy its beauty and keep it in a cool dry place away from radiators.
It would require moving from its present location in Heriot in the Scottish Borders and a fine tune in its new home (£70 for a tuning or £100 to take it to concert pitch).
