Musical Instrument, Mandolin
Folk-Art Mandolin, American, c. 1920's, entire view 1

Marquetry body, with carved neck, and 14 total frets
Sound hole is Crescent Moon with 10 cut-out stars on top,
Reminds us of a South Carolina motif, but no firm history
Carved one-piece bridge and saddle is included, but not installed.
Depending on where the saddle is installed, scale can be 14-18"
10.5" from nut to 14th fret. Some toning to varnish, but no discernable play wear.
Not strung, so not evaluated as a playing instrument, but instead as a great piece of
folk art. Great folk art musical instrument to be hung on the wall or added
to a great folk art or musical instrument collection. (L 28.5", W 11.75” D: 2")
