For Sale

Beautiful and spectacular original romantic guitar, in very good condition and neatly decorated with mother of Pearl and fine timbers inlays.

Maker unknown; Without the original label. It probably dates from the middle / second half of the 19th century. The guitar shows diverse influences in its craftsmanship, but it is very likely that it comes from the German region of Saxony; (probably from Marneukirchen, one of the most important musical instrument manufacturing centers in Europe for 350 years, or from Bubenreuth). The guitar exhibits the slotted dome-shaped head that Austro-German makers had begun to use in conjunction with geared tuners, since the 1830s.
