Behold these exquisite Rikhi Ram sitars.
The first is likely from the mid-1960s based on the left-justified gold lettered sans serif badge, the beautiful carving, smooth petal main pegs, and bone langot. Thanks to Tony Karasek for weighing in its age.
The second is likely from the late-1950s to mid-1960s based on the badge, binding, and other attributes.
