All harpists! Please! Listen up:
There is an absolutely stunning antique harp on eBay. It is in a live auction which will be held in Massachusetts on Feb. 23rd. All absentee bids (via internet) must be made by Feb 22. I encountered this harp while browsing for fun on eBay and it is a stunning Lyon and Healy Style 16. 45 Strings. Looks like a double action.
The harp has obviously been sadly neglected for years, as you can see by taking a close up look at the strings (several are strung wrong and many are missing), and the pedals, which are all in different positions. It looks almost like someone was playing the harp and just left.
It is still a beautiful harp. It is valued at 3000-4000 dollars. Bidding starts at $1500. I am getting a new harp myself or I would leap at the chance to buy it!!!
To find it, look under “Antique String Insturments”. Lot 1043. I really hope this harp goes to a good home. Fight the good fight! Save the harps!
