1.Vintage Autoharp

 

Manufactured and Trade Mark registered by Oscar Schmidt – International Inc. 87 Ferry Street, Jersey City, N.J.

The Autoharp is a musical instrument in the chorded zither family. It features a series of chord bars attached to dampers, which, when pressed, mute all of the strings other than those that form the desired chord. Although the word autoharp was originally a trademark of the Oscar Schmidt company, the term has colloquially come to be used for any hand-held, chorded zither, regardless of manufacturer.
