CONCERTONE TENOR BANJO Circa 1936

A rococo gem, with opulent ornamentation, especially on the closed back, and the intricate neck carving. The neck and headstock employ a great deal of mother-of-pearl, and the purfling and inlaid detailing are exquisite.

This banjo was a gift from Bob Saporiti, senior VP for marketing for Warner Bros. Records, and found by him in the course of his international travels.
