The Early French harpsichord with a 4-foot on the upper manual is made from massive walnut and finished in lacquer. It sits on an eight-leg frame with top and bottom cross-beams, fitted to the instrument's curved body.
The harpsichords after Vaudry and after Pierre Donzelague are two-coloured and made with casein paint; they sit on a fitted frame with upper and lower cross-beams. The Taskin instrument is two-cloured as well and has a six-leg Louis XVI stand. The keyboards are ebony-covered. As with the Flemish instruments, 23.5 carat gilding is available.
