Broadwood Forte Grand No 3891

It is always exciting to see a rare forte-grand come onto the market but one having a good provenance adds 'icing to the cake'.

Previously owned by Benjamin Britten (a bill for tuning, dated 1957, is in the possession of the Britten-Pears Foundation) the piano later came up for sale in a Christie's auction in June 1962. Our research is ongoing - so watch this space! 

17th September 2009 sale: estimate £15,000 - 20,000
