Hint they are pre world war II. Are they made of rosewood or monkeywood or Asian Mahogany?

The wood looks like something in the mahogany family, definitely not rosewood. The way the mouth is toward the rear of the plane makes me think Asian in origin, probably China or a Southeast Asian country, as they just don’t look Japanese. Past that, I don’t know. Heck, that much is just a guess.

I second the mahogany guess, especially evident in the plane at the top of photo 2

Have your say...
