Antique Boat Piano John Broadwood - Selling

Post by Grandpas Piano »

I have an antique boat piano by John Broadwood & Sons, London. The keyboard folds upwards giving it a very compact upright shape.
It was my grandfathers but now we’re giving up on any of us learning so I am trying to find out the best way to sell it. I can’t find a similar one online so would be grateful for some pointers.

107cm high
42cm deep with keyboard up 
58cm when keyboard down 
128cm wide

. Working order other than the very top E key. 
It was tuned a few years ago. Some water damage on top from plant pot. Small chip at base level, I have the piece.

You could say it is a collector's piece however, the trick is finding a collector who wants it will need a lot of work.

Trade will ask you for money to take it away you can go on Facebook and ask Bill Kibby if he's interested or do a PM off this site.
