Vintage Ebony Minstrel Style Bones
Backside die-stamped, "GERMANY"

This pair of ebony minstrel style bones was acquired in March 2016 from a seller in Lake Ann, Michigan.

Description

Smooth black ebony. Never seen a die-stamped pair like this. Backside of each bone die-stamped "GERMANY." Excellent condition. Slightly thinner (and lighter in weight) than traditional minstrel style bones...excellent for medium and small hands.

How Old Are They?

Could be older, but they probably date from the American amateur minstrel period which flourished from the 1920s to 1950s.

  • Slightly Thinner than Traditional Minstrel Style Bones: Excellent for medium and small hands.
