Some History..The Clark Music Company began manufacturing the Clark Irish Harp in 1908 and selling it in 1909. Established in 1912, however, the company could not keep up with orders, and negotiated with Lyon and Healy to make 250 Clark harps, paying royalties to the company. L & H continued to make Clark harps until 1935. As such, Clark harps were being made in Syracuse by the Clark Harp Manufacturing Company and in Chicago by L & H simultaneously for a period of time. This one came from the factory in Syracuse, NY.
The collapsible stand, which is also perfectly intact, is also decorated with shamrock wreath, and the harp can be mounted either front-ways so it can be leaned back into the hollow to be played, or backward so it can just rest on the stand.
