Antique 32 String Zither Auto-Harp by Franz Tomschik, Vienna with Case.
This antique instrument was found on estate sale.
This zither has black lacquer finish. It shows wear from the age, and needs some restoration There’re two cracks - one on the top, and one on the back of instrument. Also there’re two separations on the glue joints on the top. This is a 32 string instrument, with 5 stings on the fret-board and 27 on the main body. About half of strings are missing. It does have all its pins. One leg is missing. I believe the custom made wooden carry case is original. It has a couple of chips and cracks (on the bottom board) as well. Accessories are missing.
The body of the instrument (w/o tuners, pins and fret-board) approx. measures: 24.5" x 10.5" x 1".
