Ans.: rebec!

I was watching a DVD of Cadfael last night: -

and a minstrel was playing a rebec, so I thought I'd post a few links here.

Interesting!

 

It took me a while to get the joke.

Cute joke! 

I really like the idea of the 'toddler' size, but wonder about how hard it is to hold with such a curved back and bottom edge. 

My Ukulele has a curved back and I have a heck of a time trying to keep it from slipping/sliding around while I'm trying to play it!

Italian mandolins are still "bowl-backed" (I believe the correct expression is. Bowlback, bowl back, whatever).

They are good for resting on pot-bellies, lol!
