Stradivarius is famous for stringed instruments as Ruckers is for harpsichords. 

This Ruckers -1608 was owned by Queen Christina of Sweden.

Fashions come and go, this instrument started life as a harpsichord, then at great expense and trouble it was converted to a piano until 1928 and then returned back into a harpsichord.
