Interesting late 19th Century banjo celebrating the 400th Anniversary of Christopher Columbus' putative discovery of the New World in 1492.
10 7/8" head.
Inlays of pearl and brass and other metals showing one of the three Caravels that sailed from Spain [is it the Nina, the Pinta, the Santa Maria?],
the Italian and American Flags, the American Eagle and other important symbols. A few cosmetic issues incident to age, but an attractive, largely original and eminently playable 125 year old banjo.
