For Sale: Lyon & Healy Style 17, #2666 - Gold and Cobalt Blue harp. This harp was originally built in 1924. It is a truly lovely looking and unique gold harp with an interesting history which includes being used by Paul McCartney. The harp is a dark cobalt blue which sets off the gold gorgeously. The harp shows beautifully but will require work to bring it to playing condition. It needs a new sounding board. The action could also use a re-riveting but can be used as is. It has not been played in more than 25 years. The harp is being price accordingly - taking into consideration all of these issues. Asking price: $10,500 or best offer. (Mike Lewis and Karen Gottlieb are familiar with the harp. Mike can discuss the options on what can be done to bring the harp to playing condition for a very limited budget. His current estimate is $2500, which would include stabilizing the sounding board and crack, restringing and a regulation. Please contact the owner directly for more details and the full appraisal: Joan Firestone, San Rafael. 415-823-7976.
For Sale: Lyon & Healy Harp, Style 20, #268. Bronze column and base with Gold accent rings, an extended soundboard (added when body and soundboard were replaced in 1949). Appraisal value (for sale "as is") = $4500 OBO. This is the same size as a L&H Style 15, but with carving and gilding. Built circa 1900 with 45 strings. Most recently in 1967 received a new neck, soundboard and re-rivet, and the column was refinished in bronze and gold rings. Cosmetically, the harp shows beautifully, in virtually perfect condition. The harp has not been played or maintained in more than 30 years. To be expected, the strings are old and need replacing. The neck is showing signs of twisting and the rivets are clicking, but these are NOT serious problems and can all be worked with. However, the main concern with the harp is that it needs the baseboard reset. The coast of this repair by Lyon and Healy harps in Chicago is $3000, which would also include a regulation and a new set of strings. It is a relatively inexpensive fix and would make the harp totally playable, giving it many years of life. (Mike Lewis may be able to do it slightly cheaper and save shipping costs as well.) The instrument is something to consider fixing-up and using as a second gig harp (easy to move) with that 'old world gold look' clients love...or to have as a teaching instrument, rental harp or maybe for a student. It is possible that the harp may prove a gem, once repairs have been made, but hard to know since it has not been used/tuned in many years and some strings are missing. The harp has been very fairly priced with all repair needs reflected in the asking price. The owner is eager to sell to the right buyer. Karen Gottlieb has done the appraisal and write-up of this harp, located in Davis, CA. Please contact the owner, Barbara Meierhenry at, 530-753-8032 for more details, a full appraisal and more photos of the harp. You may also contact Karent Gottlieb for more information about her comments/appraisal of the instrument.
