Instrument Section C-258 to C-259, Maker - William Dove
A good survey by Wes Williams
of Dove's various addresses and some of his instruments is here: This states:
"William Dove - 20 Poland Street, Oxford Street. Dove, another ex-Wheatstone worker, started manufacturing around 1850. He did not remain in business for long according to Jones, and the company was taken over by Keith, Prowse & Co. Directory listings for Dove disappear after 1852. The two Horniman Dove instruments are Nos.217 and 234, and the lowest Prowse No 1156 (Keith, Prowse and Vicker)".
Here is a selection of information about a few selected Dove instruments from the Collection
C.258 -William Dove No 106 (104 internally) :- A standard 48-key, with 20 Poland Street label, and unusual large-font "L & R" stamps.
D.258 William Dove No 42 (104 internally) :- A standard 48-key, with 25 Poland Street label, and unusual large-font "L & R" stamps.
