    I was shocked when they arrived! Really beautiful! I think a master craftsman that made instruments saved pieces from big ones and made these! The mother of pearl is best I have ever seen! Thanks!!

    I have a similar set of inlaid instruments, but there are only 6+ a bow. Also the box has a clear window so they can be displayed.

    This one-of-a-kind handmade miniature instrument was artistically handcrafted by Mexican folk artist Pedro Pedraza Salvador from Mexico City, who sadly passed away over a year ago. However, his gift of creative artistry and craftsmanship lives forever in his work. This is your opportunity to own one of his pieces. Pedro Pedraza Salvador is known for his delicate Mexican handicrafts such as small boxes, frames for mirrors of varying shapes and sizes, crosses, picture frames and above all the range of musical instruments which include violins, guitars, harps and zithers. Each is a delight for the eyes and sought after by collectors of miniatures.
