❌SOLD❌Lyon & Healy 5 String Banjo, c. 1895

Here is a lovely example of a turn of the century Lyon & Healy 5 String banjo, built  circa 1895.  Though there is no stamping on the dowel stick or label, it has the signature L&H shaped peghead and the lovely L&H Patent tailpiece which confirms the origin. The Lyon & Healy firm grew out of an effort by Oliver Ditson – beginning in 1864 – to expand his wholesale musical instrument business into the US Midwest, with a facility in Chicago run by George Washburn Lyon and Patrick J. Healy.
