Unlike known triple harps of the period in Wales, this instrument was constructed to be played on the right shoulder. Although used at Powys Castle, Welshpool, it was earlier bought by a local person, Humphrey Humphreys, from a harpist to King George III. The harp might therefore have been made in London.
