This rare Triple mandolin belonged to my late Grandfather. There is no branding of any type to determine its make or vintage. My guess is late 19th century as my Grandfather would now be 115. He was a multi- insturmentalist and played in a group along with his three brothers. His main insturment was the violin but he loved to play this mandolin at the family "Hoedowns" often accompaning my dad on piano and my uncle on guitar as well as anyone else who joined in.
The closest info I've found to match this is a P.& G. Solis New York
Model : LaRegina but I can't confirm this.
Any help identifying is welcome.
