    Re: Derr mandolin, Toledo

    After you said that, I finally was able to find them online. The tuners aren’t original, but appear to be Grover 304C Sta-Tite Mandolin Tuners in chrome. So there has been some restoration done.

    I read somewhere that the painter Vjekoslav Karas was in Rome when he created this painting. Online, the instrument is called a lute, but I believe that comes from either generalization or from the...
