theres a bridge on the fret board. that seems counter-intuitive though as I dont think it would help to accentuate volume. looks like a home build. it might play though...

This struck me as something that was ornamental, & may have hung on a wall as a type of mini shelf to showcase some  knick knack.

Wall pocket, and nicely done.



There was a pattern that was published in many "Home Journals" from the 1890s for a banjo shaped mirror (a how to project).  I've seen a couple mirrors turn up on ebay over the years that were obviously marked from that pattern.



I get a 1920s vibe from this one (and not because there is no 5th string).

It will play fine, just wait a few days for the moon to wane a bit.

Maybe a "head" was supposed to fit over it?
