Founded in 1872, Carl Fischer, Inc. sold zither sheet music and zithers bearing their label. Although the maker's label specifies Carl Fischer as the manufacturer, it is also probable that the company commissioned foreign and domestic factories to manufacture zithers and other instruments to be sold in their store. At the time this zither was constructed, their store location was 6 Fourth Ave., which is 56 Cooper Square today.
