Soprano Ukulele with decal
on back of head which reads: Bergstrom Music Company LTD, Honolulu,
Hawaii. We believe this instrument was made around 1915. The front of
the head reads: Kumalae Gold Award P.P.I.E. 1915. The front also has
the Hawaiian phrase, “Ua Mau ke o ka Aina i ka Pono,” which is

Our best guess for the
wood used to manufacture this lovely piece is Hawaiian mahogany. The
finish is original, in good shape, with minor nicks and scratches.
The original leather case, still fairly sturdy, but showing wear, is
included. The case has been initialed in brass with the letters V.V.
This would be a great gift

pick-up is okay, but we can also ship, and would require
reimbursement for fees incurred for postage and insurance.
