George Harrison Owned & Played Small Xylophone

Beatles lead guitarist, singer-songwriter, who went on to have a tremendously successful solo career, was a multi-talented musical giant. George Harrison owned this small xylophone with a wooden base and played it many times.

This small xylophone comes from the collection of renowned booking agent and promotional agent Irwin Pate, During his very long career, Irwin and his wife Clarine obtained a large collection of personal clothing and articles belonging to numerous entertainers. When traveling on concert tours Irwin often would obtain many of these articles from both tour crew members and venue staff, and some items he obtained directly from the celebrity. Among the vast number of entertainers that he came in contact with, worked with and knew, was George Harrison, who he worked with on several occasions. During one of their meetings, Irwin told George about his and his wife's collection, and George arranged for Irwin to be gifted some of his personal items, including this xylophone that he had owned and played many times.

Dimensions: Heavy for it's size, most likely due to its solid wood base, the approximate measurements are 10 in x 2 in x 10.25 in.

Condition: Good with some vintage wear including on one corner of the wooden base where a small section has been chipped or worn off.

Authentication: Letter from Irwin's widow, Clarine Pate, and a Gotta Have Rock and Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
