I made a small error in my post above: The Dublin-born Grecian I spoke of was actually made in 1835, not 1837. It’s my own Grecian, an English Erard, which is dated 1837.

I mention this because my harp does not have the swell-doors and never did. Obviously Pierre Erard (nephew of Sébastien, who had died in 1831) did not feel the necessity to continue putting them on his instruments.
