A one a kind harpsichord on display in the Ceramics Gallery at The Salisbury Museum has undergone a restoration after it was repainted by Diana de Vere Cole. She painted flowers and ribbons along the sides, adding to the artwork she had previously painted.<br />
<br />
This harpsichord was made by the late James Mogford of St Ann Street in Salisbury in 1984, and the painting of Salisbury Cathedral was then added by Diana de Vere Cole.<br />
<br />
The painting on the inside of the lid depicts a scene of people playing music in a field with Salisbury Cathedral in the background.
