Description Technical Specs
Vintage Rosewood Bones

This pair of vintage rosewood bones was acquired in 2005 from an antiques dealer in Santa Monica, California who is not exactly an authority on musical bones.

Got them from an estate sale, never played them, don't know how.

The pair was associated with a pair of old natural ox rib bones, and have been in my private collection for the past few years. Now it is time for them to go back into circulation. My decision to put them up for sale is fine with my wife who suffers from frequent migraines and does not have a problem with my having less bones around the house to rattle!

How Old Are They? 
The fine surface resembles other vintage rosewood (and ebony) bones I have seen with a characteristic handcrafted finish that was scraped - not sanded. The combination of that fine finish plus rich rosewood patina makes me guess the pair dates between the Civil War and 1890s.
  • Handcrafted: Quality vintage craftsmanship
  • Dark Patina: Elegant color typical of vintage rosewood.
  • Characteristic Sound: Produce distinctive sharp rosewood clicks.
  • Minstrel Style Design: Still popular after 150 years.
