Anon. Italian square piano (Luigi Hoffer in Venice attr.)  ca.1805-1810

 

6 octaves FF-f''''

Action : simple Prellmechanik with under dampers

It has 3 kneelevers that were missing but are reproduced recently : for lowering the dampers - harp stop - Bassoon stop.


The harp stop is original and the bassoon stop is lost but its signs are clearly there to see that there must have been the usual bassoon stop which covers up to 3 octaves!

The original stool and tuning key are also preserved with the piano.
