This masterpiece is superbly crafted, intricately carved and clad in lavish 23+ karat gold leaf. Inspired by the rococo style seen in French King Louis XV’s time, the harp conveys a light yet elaborate style of art, incorporating leaves, flowers, scrolled toes and shapes reminiscent of shells. Its sound is true Lyon & Healy: clear and resonant with carrying ability. The Louis XV has a double Rosewood inlay to complement its solid Sitka Spruce soundboard. An exquisite floral trellis design hand-painted on the soundboard using 23+ karat gold leaf. As a Lyon & Healy Special Instrument, the Louis XV comes with a unique miniature etching of a Lyon & Healy concert grand action plate design on the inside of the soundboard and a richly engraved, previously retired front action plate as well as an engraved back plate.
