Nr. 28 im Musikinstrumenten Museum der Universität Leipzig

1802 Carl Lemme published instructions¹ for the care of his instruments including a catalogue of his instruments. In his catalogue this is clavichord nr. 14:

"Ditto my completely new invented kind.  The outer case is oval, in antique-gusto or with panels and inlays, polished and well crafted, ranging from Contra F through a''', otherwise like above mentioned instruments, à 15 Friedrischsd'or." 

I measured the instrument in the museum and made a drawing. The clavichord is under construction.
