Vintage Lyon and Healy harp crate converted into a desk, vanity or bar


***NOTE: Due to the size and weight of the crate we are not shipping but allowing for local pick-up only. Buyer is responsible for arranging and paying for shipping.***

This beautiful statement piece was originally a shipping crate used to send a Lyon & Healy Harp safely to it's destination. This well-made and substantial wooden shipping case has metal banded corners and it's original clasps and closures. It has been carefully and thoughtfully converted into a functional piece of furniture, probably intended as a vanity or desk. It would also make a unique retail display piece or bar. The inside has been upholstered and padded with a hunter green and dark red striped fabric and finished with gold braiding. There is a desk/vanity height shelf fitted perfectly to the crate. There is also a skirted stool upholstered to match the crate fabric. The stool can be stored neatly under the shelf and the crate can be close completely and latched. The crate is in very good overall condition with light wear typical of it's age and usage. This item can be seen at our retail location in Cleveland, OH. See profile for address.

From Wikipedia: Lyon & Healy is an American musical instrument manufacturer based in Chicago, Illinois. Today best known for concert harps, the company's Chicago headquarters and manufacturing facility contains a showroom and concert hall. George W. Lyon and Patrick J. Healy began the company in 1864 as a sheet music shop. By the end of the 19th century, they manufactured a wide range of musical instruments—including not only harps, but guitars, mandolins, banjos, ukuleles and various brass and percussion instruments.
