Style 23

Created by Lyon & Healy in 1890, this complex harp is symbolic of the Victorian era during which it was first made.  The Style 23 has become the most recognized harp in the world and showcases the woodworking artistry of the Lyon & Healy craftspeople.  Its sound is unmistakable: even, responsive and resonant.  The highly embellished floral carving at the crown, top of the column, base and feet, is coupled with a fleur de lis pattern at the bottom of the column – both were notable features of the time.  Sweeping organic gold leaf decoration accents the extended Sitka Spruce soundboard, which also features a double Rosewood inlay along the edges.  The Style 23 features solid brass action plates with richly stylized lettering and ornamentation.  The Style 23 Bronze is available in walnut finish and comes with a cover, tuning key and a 5-year limited warranty.

The Salzedo

Introduced by Lyon & Healy in 1928, the Salzedo is named after legendary harpist-composer-teacher Carlos Salzedo, who collaborated with Witold Gordon on its design.  Created in the Art Deco style characteristic of the 1920s, the Salzedo is marked by precise linear carving and austere geometric decoration in the Hard Maple column and base.  This same style is reflected in the ornamentation on the extended soundboard, which features hand-applied red and silver stripes – also a popular Art Deco pattern.  Its bold lines and angles create a striking and unmistakable profile while its full, clear sound make it world-class.  The Salzedo’s uniquely angled Sitka Spruce soundboard is highlighted by Rosewood inlay along the edges.  Restrained decoration on the solid brass action plates complements the design of the harp. The Salzedo is available in natural finish and comes with a cover, tuning key and a 5-year limited warranty.

Style 11 Nouveau

A romantic harp designed by Lyon & Healy in 1919, the Style 11 Nouveau is characterized by a classic Art Nouveau motif of fluid vertical lines, flowers and vine tendrils which are hand-carved into the Hard Maple column, base and feet. The extended soundboard features a double Rosewood inlay along the edges and is accented by soft floral decoration embellished with hand-painting.  In colors that complement this decoration, the hand-carved floral elements have also been meticulously hand-painted, resulting in a show-stopping effect.  The Style 11 Nouveau has a beautiful sound, both resonant and clear. It features artistically ornamented brass action plates uniquely designed for the Style 11. It comes with a cover, tuning key and a 5-year limited warranty.

The Prince William

Commissioned in the 1920s, the original Prince William was to be a one-of-a-kind instrument that was left unfinished due to Depression-era woes.  In the 1950s an employee of Lyon & Healy personally financed its completion and named the instrument for his highly regarded harp division manager, William J. Parks.  The Prince William’s sound is true Lyon & Healy: clear and resonant with carrying ability.  With a mahogany finish, bunches of 23+ karat gilded roses drape from the top of the crown and swirl the base, enhancing its regal appearance. A double Rosewood inlay complements the solid Sitka Spruce soundboard.  The hand-painted soundboard decoration using 23+ karat gold leaf features a bouquet of flowers set in an elaborate vase surrounded by trellised vines and ribbon.  As a Lyon & Healy Special Instrument, the Prince William comes with a unique miniature etching of a Lyon & Healy concert grand action plate design on the inside of the soundboard, a richly engraved, previously retired front action plate as well as an engraved back plate, a transport cover set and an extended 10-year limited warranty.

Style 3 Gold

Introduced in 1911, the Style 3 is a modern version of the Gothic design found in Western Europe dating back to the twelfth century.  Its sound is true Lyon & Healy: clear and resonant with carrying ability.  Hand-gilded with 23+ karat gold leaf, the dramatic geometrical patterns and bold details featured on the column and base bring to mind the pointed arches, buttresses and vaulting popular in the Gothic style.  A double Rosewood inlay complements the extended solid Sitka Spruce soundboard.  The hand-painted soundboard decoration using 23+ karat gold leaf features an elaborate, swirling floral vine intensified with subtle green and red hues.  As a Lyon & Healy Special Instrument, the Style 3 comes with a unique miniature etching of a Lyon & Healy concert grand action plate design on the inside of the soundboard, a richly engraved, previously retired front action plate as well as an engraved back plate, a transport cover set and an extended 10-year limited warranty.
