Dulcimer Christmas Ornament
Personalized Christmas Ornament
Dimensions: 1" x 5 1/2"
This instrument goes by Appalachian dulcimer or mountain dulcimer and has its origins in the Appalachian mountains by the Scots-Irish immigrant communities that settled there. A member of the zither family, this fretted string instrument typically has three or four strings. This four-stringed replica ornament is prevalent in folk music and four strings allows more complex chords to be played that are needed for jazz music. The dulcimer is often played while streched across the lap or for a better sound it is rested on the floor of piece of furniture. The frets are arranged in a diatonic scale and if you need to play it in a different scale, you will need to retune the entire instrument. This personalized dulcimer ornament is a beautiful wood replica of the real thing with fine details you will be able to appreciate such as the cut out hearts embellished on the surface.
The dulcimer ornament is a gift for a dear aunt who plays the dulcimer. I am sure she will love it. It is beautiful personalized. I received it quickly and in excellent condition. I will shop here again!

10/30/2016 - "Would like more choices with baby's stats on them. This a treasure for parents. I have gotten one for all of my grandchildren. Adult children like to remember what they weighed and how long they were when born in reference to their own children. Anonymous Respondent"
10/4/2016 - "I would like to see comparison capabilities for the ornaments. I bought wedding ornaments and was trying to decide between several options. I had to keep clicking on the ornament, look at certain details, then click the back button and inspect the next one. Would like to be able to pick 4 or 5 and see them on the screen side by side.

6/26/2016 - "I have bought four ornaments a year for my son since he was born. He is now 22 and is a student in law school. He loves receiving them and I plan to let him take them when he gets married. This year I got him a lawyer ornament, a FIJI (his fraternity), Democrat donkey and a couple (him and his girlfriend) I always get him ornaments that have to do with his life. I hope he cherishes them for years to come. Last year I got him one of his dog, one for Phi Beta Kappa (honor's fraternity) and a graduate one from the University of Arkansas. He loved them. He started out with Baby's first Christmas, graduated to Barney and the Rugrats, trains, baseball, taekwondo and with many in between. You have the best selection. Thanks so much. Janet B."
