Single action pedal harp (pedals à sabots/crochets). Ribbons of bells and sprays of ivy interweave along the column, which rests upon a base ornamented with floral motifs.

The present blue color is actually slightly darker than the original. France, 1783.

1775-1785 French Harp at the Historisches Museum, Basel - From the curators' comments: "Many details of the construction, of the execution of the carved neck spiral and of the painting of the post and sound box indicate that the harp was built between 1775 and 1785 by the important Parisian harp maker Georges Cousineau (1733-1800). At that time Paris was a center of harp playing."
