Peghead of banjo with mother of pearl inlay and engraving.

Description

Guilded Age-inspired banjo with intricate inlay and engravings. Children of the upper classes had a flirtation with the banjo an it's exoticism. This instrument references those ideas with imported ebony wood and inlayed and engraved mother-of-pearl, with designs inspired by William Morris and the Arts and Crafts movement.
