RARE, Vintage PIANO HARP made in Saxony GERMANY. This is a member of the ZITHER family of instruments, and provides 7 Chords and 24 side strings. The tuners appear to be in good condition, and there are two holes for a bent wire sheet music support (not included). The 7 chords each consist of six strings and provide you with E, A, D, F, G and C chords (no B), and the 24 individual strings are for playing the melody line (7 of these melody strings are missing or broken). All of the strings are very old, but they are playable. The strings are taught and make clear tones, but I have not tried to tune them. The harp measures about 22" tall and is about 16.5" at its widest point, and the hollow body is about 1.5 thick.

The tuning pegs extend beyond that about 3/4. The front has a very pretty rose decal for decoration. The front and sides show minor wear on the edges but I could find no cracks. The back has a wall hanging device.

The back has a couple of very narrow cracks that are very hard to see in the photos (they were not immediately apparent to my eye, either), and they do not affect the "voice" of the instrument. If you want to get full pleasure and voice from this instrument, I would advise replacing all of the strings (you may have trouble finding a "set", but strings are available individually from any good music store).
