Pinched-waist fiddle handle, pointed shoulders, script mono M L J on front; 5-7/8" in length. Condition is excellent, extended bowl tip unworn. Pinched-waist fiddles are not common in VA; Wright's proximity to TN & KY, where the style is quite common, probably had an influence here. See Hollan's "Virginia Silversmiths" for a full discussion of Wright and his work.
