Lyon & Healy Style 22

This instrument was an incredible find. Built in 1915, it has all it's original parts (neck, soundboard, baseboard) which are in excellent condition. And believe it or not, the gilding is all original, with no touchup!

When the instrument came in, it was covered with a dark orange shellac (my guess is that the owner was a heavy smoker. Smoke darkens any finish). After trying various ways of getting it off, my excellent gilder and I came up with something that worked! We were able to remove all of the dark uneven shellac without touching the gold underneath.

This harp has a beautiful resonant sound and will give many years of excellent service if well taken care of.
