Miniature Ten String Harp

This would have been made in the mid 20th century, primarily as a promotional decoration in pubs, possibly for Guinness, and should be regarded as such rather than as a serious instrument although it would be possible to produce a simple tune or two. This one has been painted in a style rather like the English canal art. It would have originally had steel strings, which would be more resonant. It is 46 cm high.

Ref: C215Z
