Owen Daly Grimaldi with Italianate Ornament

Another version by Owen Daly of the 1697 Carlo Grimaldi instrument in the Nurnberg collection. For this Italian harpsichord the owner requested some traditional Italian-style ornament, which had to include putti, or cherubs. We decided to keep the inside of the lid fairly simple with a musical scene in a cartouche in the center and more ornament to fill out the rest of the space.
