Large Ukulele Banjo

This banjo ukulele is larger than usual. Pot diameter is 9 inches. You can see it pictured alongside a normal sized uke, for comparison purposes, below. It would be particularly suitable for playing in the lower C tuning. There is no maker's name to be found, but everything about it points to it being a Keech: the internal resonator and tone ring of the kind patented by Keech, the bands around the sides, and the general quality of the construction. I am reliably informed that these were made by George Houghton. It is in playing order with what would appear to be new Galli strings, and it has a low playing action.
