This is an "Amerikanische Harpen Zither. Model - AEOL
Made by Alwin Eichler Company and sold by Max Schramm, Berlin.
Manufactured from 1900-1925.
Usually thought of as just an accompanying instrument but it was also designed to play the melody.
5 groups of chords with 43 strings.
This is one of the earlier models with a hand-painted design, probably early 1900.
Good condition, no cracks or splitting. The hand-rail has been made by me.
Comes with a tuning key, sorry no case.
