Here's a beauty I recently ran across that might be of some interest here. It's a great player and has some elegant features like the inlayed wood frets and pretty fancy tuners. I gave these the old archaeologist's "tooth test" and, while the thumb pegs is certainly celluloid, the four tuners in the peg head tap against the teeth like bone. 

Interesting Note: the inside of the rim appears to have been signed in black ink early on. There are four or five words present; the only one still legible reads Bishop.

Is this one you are planning to sell?

Beautiful! Can we hear some “Turkey in the Straw” on it please?

I really like the tailpiece.

Where do you come across these things?

That's a beauty!
