1778 Adam Beyer, square piano

1778 BeyerThis square piano is believed to have been at the same country house for nearly 200 years until the estate was sold in 1977. From that time it was owned by a member of the family until being purchased for a private collection in 2007. It has survived substantially in original condition. The keywell is remarkably fine with a crisp and unmarked nameboard inscription that reads: “Adam Beyer, Londini, Fecit, 1778, Compton Street, St. Anns, Soho”
