Antique Franz Schwarzer Zither - This is a wonderful Antique Zither, still in it's original case. This musical instrument, much like a lap harp is simply beautiful, and in excellent condition, perhaps not concert quality, but close. The Zither comes with a couple of books of music along with some extra strings, a tuning whistle, as well as the tool to tighten the strings. Beautifully constructed, and in excellent physical shape. I have plucked on the strings, and though I do not have a trained ear, it does make some very pretty sound. Handle on case is broken at one of the connections. Please ask questions if you need more information.

Here is some information I found on Wikipedia: The zither is a musical string instrument, commonly found in Slovenia, Austria, Hungary, northwestern Croatia, the southern regions of Germany, alpine Europe and East Asian cultures, including China. The term "citre" is also used more broadly, to describe the entire family of stringed instruments, which the strings do not extend beyond the sounding box, including the hammered dulcimer, psaltery, Appalachian dulcimer, guqin, guzheng (Chinese zither), koto, gusli, kantele, gayageum, đàn tranh, kanun, autoharp, santoor, yangqin, piano, harpsichord, santur, swarmandal, and others. It is played by strumming or plucking the strings like a guitar.

Instrument measures 22" x 12" x 2"
