Collard & Collard

Collard & Collard
Circa 1854

Probably the most popular subject for inquiries I have received over the years is the firm whose history began way back in 1760 with Longman & Broderip, then the various Clementi names, (which at their peak squeezed “Clementi, Banger, Hyde, Collard & Davis” onto the name board!) then Collard & Collard, taken over by Chappell, and now with Kemble. Over 200,000 Collards were manufactured from 1760 through 1960 over 300 years of Pianoforte Manufacturing.
