    Was it made by Erard Paris or London?

    Hi, Did you ever sell the Antique Erard Harp?

    Krysty- I’m the one who bought that harp. It turns out that it was built in 1885 and everything is original and in excellent condition. I’ve performed several times on it already. The sound is unbelievable.

    Hi Krysty – go to the David Williams Harp Galleries Website link from Harp Column – he has 3 or 4 of them –

    Do the swell doors actually work? (Would love to actually play a harp with swell doors)

    This doesn’t have swell doors. It’s a Gothique and they didn’t have swell doors. Only the Grecians had those.

    Many English made Erard gothics had doors in the sound holes, as did my 1899 Browne and Buckwell.

    That’s interesting Tacye. I’ve never seen a Gothic with doors on the back. Perhaps it was the London Erard company that did it and not the Paris Erard. A friend in Boston will be getting a restored Grecian Erard in a month or two. It has the doors on the back, and that will be my first chance to play a harp that has them.

    Could be, I have seen very few Paris Erards.
