This Columbian Zither here definitely needs some work before you bring it to the opera with you, but it is very old and still makes sound. Has TWO strings missing but usable for sure. Pretty good for being around 125 years old.

No one is sure how long this has been moving around in my family but it does say that it was made for a childrens magazine company called "Youths Companion" out of Boston MA, and they existed from 1827-1929, but were known by "The Companion- For all the Family" in most of the later years, so ultimately its likely that this instrument is from 1900, could be even older.

Look forward to hearing some ones grand ideas for this piece.
