    What a beautiful instrument, and such a shame it’s not being played any more…

  • I think this mandolin is handled regularly because it’s in a “living museum” where the artifacts are openly displayed. It’s a wonderful place to spend a Sunday afternoon!

    Congratulations Robert. You deserve this feature so much. I love the colors, very old world.
    The desk is pretty nice too, not just the mandolin, Di

  • Thank you for your kind words, Di. I’m not certain I _deserve- it, but I will certainly accept it. Cheers.
