Mandolin #449

This one is made with an English Petite hand laced rein. The old ones this size are rare and hard to find and this is one that I recently purchased. Historically these were used by the ladies riding side saddle at the royal gatherings. One day it could be worth millions. Till then, you can store it on your mandolin.
