VINTAGE PRE-WORLD WAR II
HOHNERíS 4-SIDED HARMONICA/HARP
You are bidding on a very rare and unique Hohnerís pre-WWII 4-sided harmonica/harp (C, D, F, G). In 1857 and at the young age of 24, Matthias Hohner founded Hohner. This item up for auction is approximately 11 inches long and consists of 24-double holes on each of the 4 harmonicas. This item is in excellent condition, considering that it dates back prior to World War II. The harmonicas also contain the Hohnerís trademark: a circle being held by 2 hands. In the center of the circle is a 6-prong star and around the upper and lower sections of the star are the letters Ė GESETZLICH & GESCHUTZT. At the other ends of the hands circles with images of a person in the center. Around the outer portion of the left circle reads: GERMANY, PARIS 1900 & around the outside of the right circle reads: MADE IN, CHICAGO 1893. On the opposite side cover reads: HOHNERíS BEST HAMMERED REEDS.
This item appears to have been slightly used. There are no broken or missing pieces. This item was acquired in an estate of an 89-year old WWII veteran.
Also included in this auction is the original cardboard box.
