This is the 17th century French spinet made for Sally, my graphics and text specialist. She spends part of her life in the city and the rest at her mountain cabin. She needs in a harpsichord in both places.  She has my Pollux (car harpsichords) at the cabin.  This instrument was commissioned to include the cougar lid painting by Sally's friend in Leavenworth.  The instrument has a standard 17th century GG/BB - c3 compass, reverse French keyboard with white "bone" sharps and the double curve bentside.

It was inspired by the 1690 instrument of Richard in the Paris collection.  I make an even smaller bentside by Rozet and the very tiny Zenti with the c - short octave.  The sound is very French and the legs unscrew so she can travel in her Suburu wagon.
