This hand painted composite folk art banjo with a series of eight African American boys’ heads along the neck and fretboard is unsigned, in the style of folk artist and sculptor Augusta Savage (1892-1962). The banjo is in very good condition, with some imperfections and expected wear from age and use. There appears to be a crack repair in the neck. A great piece of Black Americana folk art! Dimensions: 7 ½” h x 25” w x 3” d.
