1941 Marwin Jewel Mandolin

Photo for Ad 152636

In the ‘30s and ‘40s, American guitar manufacturers survived by making instruments for mail-order houses as well as teachers who wanted private label instruments to provide to their students. Enter the Harmony Company of Chicago who made, among other private label instruments, both guitars and mandolins under the name Eddie Marwin. This rare example is highly decorated with the it's "engraved tortoise” peg head overlay and pearl block fingerboard inlays.

This model features a solid spruce top, solid one piece maple back with a painted center faux inlay, “tortoise” binding top and back, and comes complete with original tuning machines, bridge, tail piece, and pick guard. In excellent condition with just a hint of fret wear.
A  wonderfully unique example of an affordable pre-war American made mandolin.
