Hi. When my father died, I inherited an antique mandolin. The only identifier I could find is the bell-shaped badge/logo on the head, but it's very worn, so the name is too hard to see. I've scoured the web for photos of similar mandolins, but I can't seem to find any. Please help point me in the right direction. Thank you. Here are two photos:

There is a paper label inside the mando visible in photo one. What does it say on the label?

Ten years ago these fine fellows (for a $25.00 fee) appraised a friends's mandolin

http://www.mandoweb.com/Services/2/Appraisals

It registered as year 1926...her grandmother was in a "chick band "...the friend has zero musical talent nor desire....however, with a "value of 2,600 USD she chose to stuff it back in the cupboard...for her drugstore nephew.

Sincerely, Gargoyle

As my neice says " Who gives a shit....it is just stuff of dead people."

Use it or lose it. Times are tough ...and you can purchase much more for 100.00 than a bobble -head ego stroke.

Try posing the pictures here - http://www.mandolincafe.com/forum

Looks American to me but there were hundreds of makers around in the early to mid 20th century producing the things.
