Piano forte by Guillaume Zimmermann
signed on the throat:
"Wilhelmus Zimmerman the groin / Parisiis fecit 1798, rue de la Poterie N°10/ pré la Grève".
Square" model veneered in mahogany and curly maple, mounted on four fluted legs.
5 octave keyboard (fa-fa) with ivory veneered steps and ebony feints.
Mechanics in working order but complete with hammers and dampers.
Several table slots. Missing fake table. Damaged lute set.
Four pedals. Venetian blind system allowing to act on the right part of the flap.
Beautiful model whose cabinetwork plays on the color contrasts between mahogany and maple.
