Its known as a Harp Guitar, John and an instrument that was usually played
as a drawing room or small venue instrument in the 19th and early 20th Centuaries. Famous American instrument maker Orville Gibson features these in is catalogue of the period that also included small bodied "Parlour" guitars.
The Harp Guitar fell out of use as musical tastes changed but made an appearance again when the folk boom of the 1960's and 70's started to include traditional "Mountain" music from the Appalachians that also saw the reemergence of the Hammered Dulcimer.
An example of this music can be heard in a beautiful piece called, "Over the Waterfall" by the Grandpa Jones Family.
It's on YT.
