if they are needing better pics or they aren't required.....(because they're tomato stakes:))

The German looks like it only needs a bit of leather for the thumb pad and rehair. Hard to tell from the picture but the whale bone wrap sorta looks possibly real which is nice if that’s the case.  The other I wouldnt bother. I’ve found many similar floating about.  Here’s one similar;) the table is fabulous btw!

Thanks for the response J,

I think it is real whalebone.

The other has real ebony frog which is why I thought maybe German.

Plus I haven't seen a Japanese bow with a trench slide.

love the tomato stake,Ha.

I’ve found they many times have that red varnish. Here’s one from the bin trenched.  Also pictured is another that is not trenched with a sorta nicely shaped ebony frog.  The sticks are very cheap. Not pernambuco.
