From the description:

Antique Indian Gourd Sitar
Beautiful Bone Inlay
Appears to be in fair condition - I expect this Instrument is around 100 Years Old - it is in need of some restoration
A Rare Instrument that can Only Appreciate in Value :wink:

Does your bloody nose twitch when anyone puts these these things on ebay??? Cynic Radar goes haywire EH????

It looks a nice job for the weekend anyway. If it goes cheap.
Some restoration INDEED
A few licks of paint or some wallpaper & it should go for a few grand like those awful veena/tamboura things that NEVER got sold HA HA

Don't know about the 100 years old though. Maybe a few years in a cupboard in the local Indian chippy or takeaway?

Twitchs like crazy it does. I guess I get riled because the increased interest in ICM, a very good thing, brings out the worst kind of hucksters or well meaning folks who are abysmally ignorent.
