About This Listing

Oscar Schmidt made bowl back mandolin from the early 1900s.  Judging by the style and condition, we guess that this mandolin was built in the 1920's.  Handmade 8 string mandolin. There is no tag inside of this mandolin.  There is no brand name anywhere on this instrument, but the headstock is an Oscar Schmidt.  

Measures 25.5"x9.5"x6.5" (65cm x 24cm x 16.5cm). Currently missing 2 strings. The tuning pegs are all functional.  Body in good shape - unknown wood.  The back striping appears to be Brazilian rosewood.  The front is ornamented with an inlaid butterfly.  Missing 5 small inlaid inserts from the trim around the outer edge, but they are only aesthetic.  Needs new strings, but seems ready to play otherwise.  Please see pictures.
