i open  a " Strange part "   , serial blog   ' bout banjo 'parts  with   this resonator

Was on an Abbott ' 5th string   i have ; i think original to it .

The Marquetery  is ...  inside ............ , with  a varnish on  ;   and it is the type of marquetery we can see on  a Windsor banjo ............. So .......  mistery

Very odd! Are you sure that it is "original"?  What does the back of the resonator look like... is that inlayed?

When I first saw this I recalled an old bentwood chair that my mother used to have! Maybe someone with considerable skill made their own resonator from a chair seat ?????

Very similar

Yes , i guess original because  the reso fits exactly the flange of the banjo

and , no , the back of the resonator is not inlayed , it 's regular mahogany
