Medieval Stringed Instrument, Lyre, made 1906:
$133

This beautiful musical instrument is a reproduction of a medieval harp, lyre, or zither made by Chickering, a well-known piano manufacturer in Boston. It measures 32 inches by 8 3/4 inches by 3 1/2 inches. Hand-inscribed on the base is "Made by Chickering and Sons on Arnold Dolmetsch's model Boston U.S.A. July 1906 No. 2. Arnold Dolmetsch was a noted scholar and reviver of medieval music and musical instruments around the turn of the 19th/20th century. The instrument comes in a custom case and has a custom tuning wrench. The case, with brass fittings, is 33 inches by 9 3/4 inches by 4 1/2 inches. The pictures are a pretty accurate representation of the honey-colored finish of the wood. The sound hole is composed of three interlocking rings. The back of the sound box heeds to be reglued and there is a longitudinal crack on the high-note side of the sound board. These defects are easily repaired by any lutanist or guitar repairer. The instrument is double-strung. The low-note string set is missing. At the top of the sound board the Chickering people wrote the notes to which each string set should be tuned. I have not attempted to tune the instrument due to the loosened back board. I have enjoyed owning this unusual instrument for more than fifteen years and it is time to find a new home for it. Good luck and enjoy the offerding!

If you Google Arnold Dolmetsch, you will find that he was an instrument maker who worked for Chickering for a while as a designer, whose instrument -making firm is still in existence in Europe (they make stringed instruments such as viols) and that there is a Medieval music festival in his name.
