This is a most unusual banjo with a 12 inch rim  with metal on the outside and a tubular brass tonering on the top edge and old style bent hooks with square nuts. The neck is profusely carved on the front and back of the peghead and on the heel and fifth string area. There are signs of gold gilding in the crevices of the carving. The inlayed frets are silver and ground flush and sit into the fingerboard.
