Description

A fabulous piece of Western Massachusetts history, this unique mandolin was made by Alexander Ricard (b.1861 – d.1931) in Springfield, MA. Of French decent and originally a cabinet maker and woodcarver, Ricard developed into a full time Luthier in 1917. Most famous for his violin work he was also a maker of fine mandolins and concert ukuleles. He used an oil varnish of his own make, in the different shades of yellow, brown and red. This particular piece has had some cracks repaired and other minor restoration here at our shop. Big sound with a warm tone add to the beauty and history of this little gem. Comes with a purple lined period correct chipboard case in fair condition.
