5 chord Mandolin zither by Meinhold, Germany 1920s
This is a very pretty Mandolin Chord Zither with a little extra making it a Mandolin-Harmonie Zither,
The bar traversing the zither is actually a Harmonica Tuner!
Blowing into each hole gives you the note to tune each string to. Very rare, the first I've seen! And it works!
The zither itself has 5 sets of chords each with 7 strings.
21 melody notes doubled up to play in unison (like a mandolin) 42 strings all together.
It's in very good condition, structurally sound, strings and pins, clean, no rust.
Pretty decal of a blue pheasant?
Delivered with a tuning key and will be tuned before leaving.
