Harps and Accessories
I have an Erard harp, made in Paris, serial number #3443.
I can’t answer your questions, but I just wanted to say that the top detail of your photo is beautiful!
Thank you for your reply Jerusha. Here is a picture of the entire harp:
I’d suggest posting your inquiry to the Antique Pedal Harps Yahoo Group.
What a beauty!
We have two harp restorers who post on this site:
French Erard 2576 in the Salvi collection has been dated to 1897, and Lily Laskine’s parents bought her number 3004 in 1903.
Haven’t got date information.
I am also very interested in knowing how old my Erard harp is as well.
You might want to check with Clive Morley and/or John Hoare at Pilgrim, both have a long history with Erards. John in particular
Morley used to have the London Erard registers but for a while (15 years maybe) they have been in the RCM library.
Hello,The Erard 3443 was probably built in 1906 – 1907.Some people call this model “Louis XVI”, but I think it is rather ‘Louis XV”There has certainly written “13, rue du Mail, Paris” ?In any case, it is a very beautiful model!
Are you buy any chance selling your Erard Gothic. I am restoring/rebuilding mine and am in desperate need of spare parts. Please do let me know if your keen.
