Save Password. Just got this sweet Vintage Harmony H35 Batwing Mandolin at a thrift store and I was wondering if you had any information on this. I brought it into my local guitar shop and the tech said that it is weird because there are holes for a pickup which I know they had models with one but there are no screw holes where the pickup mounting ring screws in, also on the headstock there is no truss rod cover screw holes.

There is a number inside the F-Hole and it is H There is no other number anywhere in this unit as I have checked, even under the neck. Do you have any information on this neat mandolin? Especially what year it is?

This convertible mandolin-shaped locket dates from the second quarter of the nineteenth century, a time when romanticising the past was at the height of fashion. The jewel is also ripe with symbolism, referring to the themes of love and harmony, as well as, though perhaps not intentionally, of Christmas. The most striking feature of this piece is that it is in the form of a mandolin, an instrument derived from the lute, used primarily during the Renaissance and Baroque periods.

Musical instruments have long been associated with the harmony of love, and this romantic allusion would have been a clear to the owner. Other instruments such as the hurdy-gurdy, the viol and the lyre were also popular forms in love jewellery at this time. One commonality born by these instruments is that each was largely obsolete by the time these jewels were made, replaced in orchestras by more modern inventions, such as the guitar and the piano.

Instead of from contemporary life, the inspiration for these antiquated instruments was taken directly from Gothic and Renaissance artworks, primarily ecclesiastical sculpture and altarpieces, due to a growing taste for what are now termed the Gothic and the Renaissance Revival styles. Designers working in this mode generally preferred to focus on romantic themes, such as beautiful muses and putti , or cherubs, playing instruments, such as in Rosso Fiorentino’s Musical Angel dating from An example of his work in the Renaissance Revival style, displaying a muse and putti playing period instruments, can be seen in Berganza’s current collection ref.

Further to the form, the locket is a quintessential love jewel, continuing the amorous theme. The concealed compartment was created to contain a portrait of a loved one or a love token such as a lock of the lover’s hair. Romantic symbolism also continues in the choice of materials used in this locket. The hues of these symbolic gems are echoed in the green and pink or ‘rose’ gold used to decorate the body of the piece, as well as in the motifs, specifically the rose, another symbol of passionate love.

In addition to the theme of love, this piece bears symbolism appropriate to Christmas.

Harmony Company models The following members say thank you to Philphool for this post: Navigation menu I even checked a couple of guitars with double date stamps, one was stamped and. Either they re-used a back prepared for the mandolin batch, two years before on the line, or they mistakenly used a stamp in.

A Full Set of Details of each of the Mandolins listed can be provided on request, but I have felt for some time that I needed to rationalise the amount of information confronting folks They have ranged right through from , when Harmony acquired the Stella name, right through to , when Harmony ceased manufacture in Chicago Mainly 6 strings, but 12 strings whenever I could get decent ones, and likewise my other particular favourites the 4 string Tenors.

The three Stella models are described here No Mandolin you can buy new now will come with the vintage character of an All Solid Birch made Stella, which you can buy, in such exceptionally good condition, for a price the equivalent to the cost of a new standard Eastman or Goldtone. These are exceptionally pristine vintage Stella Mandolins. The internal ink model number stamp is clearly visible on two of them, but the usual corresponding date stamps cannot be seen. Knowing that Harmony produced these Mandolins until at least , and that on their guitars they only started to fit tuner bushings in around , I’m assuming that the later “Teaburst” finish one dates from around that year.

Goodbye to my Stella by Harmony Mandolin

However, the other half of the duo, Emily Frantz, says she didn’t fully realize how prevalent that subject matter would be on the project until close to its completion. Frantz and Marlin, who are married, became parents while they were creating their new album. Still, the album-making process put Frantz in the peculiar position of being one half of a duo whose project focuses specifically on the other member’s experience.
