This early photo, dated 1927, shows a man in Louisville, Kentucky, holding a zither made by famed Washington, Missouri instrument maker Franz Schwarzer. Text on the back of the photograph reads:
Clem. A. Ellert
Jan. 19 / 27
Schwarer's label can be partially seen in the above photo, but here is an image showing the label in its entirety. Through the years, he applied several unique labels to his instruments.
Do you have an item of historical interest to share with the zither community? Did you have an ancestor that played the zither? This is the place to share your stories.
