Old Italian harp mandolin
This is an old, extremely rare, Italian harp-mandolin, perhaps from the early to mid C20th. It is in good condition after minimal restoration. There is a makers label which says....
Vincenzo Miroglio & Figli
This instrument is now fully restored. The top is sound withno repairs. It has a slightly domed rosewood back and sides. The original fingerboard and brass frets are level. The tail, tuners and bridge are all originals. The top only, has been re-finished with Tru-oil varnish. It has been restrung with ultra-light GHS bronze wound classical strings, and is now playing well with an easy action, and a light, bright sound, and good sustain.
Other than cleaning, I have completed the repairs as follows… 1) levelled the fingerboard and original frets; 2) repaired slight damage to edging; 3) refinished the top with Tru-oil; and 4) re-fitted the bridge.
