This is on the wall of our holiday flat.

What do you think my chances are of getting a tune out of it? In case you can't make it out, it has 2 strings (look like gut) and no bridge. laugh

I just can't make out what is getting it to hang crookedly like that. LOL
I think if anyone could get a tune out of it, it would be you Jim. 😉

Looks cool... I think it needs to be fixed up and played. 😉

Looks like the tail piece is loose too.  You should fix it up a bit and play it.   

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

Definitely unplayable in present condition. Put some strings on it and a bridge, check for open seams and cracks and I think you got something there.

violin-student take a chance on it

Back home now, so I'll soon be back playing my own fiddle (and flute, piano and sax)!

It's amazing how much I missed having something to play on.
