HIGHLY FIGURED WALNUT DULCIMER W/SHELLS
We see in this piece a most distinctive and highly figured Claro Walnut dulcimer top whose striking appearance is enhanced by the use of cross-sectioned Black Walnut shells. We most often deny ourselves the ability to appreciate the intricate beauty of Black Walnut shells by crushing them to extract the delicious meat, but here that intricate beauty of nature is displayed for all to appreciate. The sides and back of this “jewel” are bookmatched curly Claro Walnut whose “rippled” grain pattern is another example of the beauty of nature’s handiwork.
This piece will be a true treasure and conversation piece to the one who will be fortunate to have it. Again, this comes with a Wall Display Hanger and a set of Grover Mechanical Tuners which I can install before I ship it if you wish.
