"Luscomb" 5-string banjorette, Circa 1890

This unmarked banjo is an ultra-rare Luscomb banjorette, sometimes referred to as a "Giraffe banjo".  It has a 5" rim and an 18" scale length, and wins the "cutest banjo" prize hands-down.  Although simple in appointments, it is a high quality banjo with inlaid Maltese cross tuners.  It has survived in wonderful condition and plays and sounds just great.
