Lyon & Healy (early Washburn co.) harp
« on: February 17, 2010, 02:47:07 PM »
This harp resides at the Pittock Mansion, Portland, Oregon. It is similar to Harp#501 c.1889 that appears on page 64 of John Teagles Washburn book.

That is a beautiful work of art.  Wonder what something like that goes for?  Did you know that the harp is the only common musical instrument around that can trace it's roots to a European beginning? Yep, that's right.

Hey guys, do I repeat myself a lot?  I hope not to very much. Sorry.

It doesn't seem like two years to me either, seems like maybe a year, if that much.  Tempus fugit  when it's all fun.
