This old harp of mine!

A 19TH CENTURY harp crafted in London has been donated to a Malaga museum.

Expat author Marion Leigh, from Guadalmina, donated the valuable instrument – once donated to a French king – to the Museo Interactivo de la Musica (MIMMA).

Made by legendary piano and harp craftsman Sebastian Erard in 1819, the instrument  is the latest addition to the recently relocated museum.

One of the many details that make the harp an important piece is the inscription: ‘TO THE ROYAL FAMILY. His Most Christian Majesty the King of France and H.I.M. the Emperor of all the Russias’.

It is believed to have been given to King Louis XVIII.
