    Very cool! And a beautiful harp. (Just wondering, how did they think the sheet music would be played with the stand facing away from the harp?)

    Haha! I took the picture when I went to pick up the harp. They had just started to break down the sets. I’m hoping that they had it facing in the right direction when they shot the scene!

    Speaking of harps in movies does anyone know what the harp in Harry Potter is?

    Fluffy’s harp is a 19th century Grecian – can’t tell the maker, many were made by Erard but other makers made them too. I think I remember seeing it or a similar harp lurking in the back of the Hogwarts school orchestra in one of the early films. Are there any others?

    I remember seeing one in the background of a room of a Lovejoy episode and thinking it looked like a Lyon & Healy Troubadour.

    Wooow this is awesome! I know this thread has some time, but I usually read forums and stuff on my phone and I couldn’t see the images there until today, that I used my computer to see them. The set looks awesome, and your harp really adds value and warmness to the whole ambient. I’m sure if I watch the movie I’ll pay more attention to the harp than the characters, and say something like “Hey, look at that, look at that! I indirectly “know” the owner of that harp!” lol!

    Carl,
    You and your movie star harps!
    Where would movie makers be without you!
