Beautiful antique 1920's Zither Harp with a lovely eagle emblem. Hang in your music studio or home for a unique piece of art. The wood finish includes crazing in the lacquer adding to its antique character and patina. The metal strings all appear to all be present, though it would most likely need tuning and tightening if you were planning in restoring. I am selling this piece as a home decor piece that will add instant charm to your space. Measures approx 20" x 16"
* Note: A zither is actually a category of stringed instruments dating back centuries. Zithers are identified by a flat wooden sound box and stretched metal strings, played horizontally on a table or lap with fingers or pick. Often called a lap guitar, mandolin or lap harp, zithers increased in popularity in the late 1800s to early 1900s and were found in many homes where they were used for parlor entertainment.
