Beautiful English Spinet, circa 1700.
I saw this beautiful English made Spinet in an art gallery a few months ago. It was made by Benjamin Sison of Birchin Lane, London. The case is made of walnut, the keyboard is inlaid with a panel of black marquetry on hollywood. The keys are ebony.
Sadly, it no longer has its strings- I hope one day it gets restored so it can be played once more…
