Unlabeled (but probably Lyon & Healy/Washburn) guitar, Circa 1910
This lovely parlor guitar is unmarked, but the bridge is typical of Washburn guitars made by the Lyon & Healy Company of Chicago. The inlay pattern, interestingly, is more than a bit reminiscent of that on an Orpheum No. 2 banjo from the same period, so Lange may have had a hand in this instrument as well. Note the lovely pearl binding on the top, the inlaid wood marquetry on the sides, and the pearl strip down the back of the guitar.
