I got this Lyra of Crete and it came over the sea from Bulgaria to me. I'm certain it's pre-1920. The ancient wooden case has disintegrated.
I had this old lyra repaired to be made playable again, it had some various major problems such as detached bass bar, top, and fingerboard, and broken endpost. Now I am learning to play it slowly..I'm no fiddler, so I sound pretty bad at this point. It's got some strong voice. It's fun. :)
