This is the innovative zither style banjo with the all aluminium construction very rare for 1897 with a fantastically inlaid ebony fingerboard and the hollow neck with the outer strengthening aluminium casing.

The banjo is beautifully etched all over with scroll and floral etching and is a truly fantastic instrument. Check out the photographs and enjoy!
