Mandolin guitar harp

    Hi everyone, I'm not sure if my question is pertinent to this section, but I'm really curious.... I' ve just seen an odd musical instrument called "mandolin guitar harp". It looks like some kind of zither or lyre, with a little pillar on its left side, and it has 40 strings.

    I've never seen anything similar and I'd like to know if anyone knows any details about this kind of instrument... I'm especially wondering how it's played, I think it should be played on the lap like a small harp but I'm not sure?
