Henri Hemsch, as well as his brother Guilluame, produced some of the finest instruments that are left for us to examine, measure and inspire us. These instruments represent the height of Parisian harpsichord making in the 18th Century.

The case is made of aged poplar and fir, a decorated fir soundboard with beech or walnut bridges. The keyboard is ebony with bone-topped accidentals, painted and gilded case with bands and an apron stand with tapered legs. Cabriole legs, lid paintings and other special decoration also available(See pictures).
