I found this recently at a flea market and purchased it for $10.
The dimensions are as follows:
5 .5 " pot
12 frets that are real metal into wood
One violin type peg (three missing)
Light colored wood (maple?) with nickel sized hole in resonator (permanently attached)
Skin is paper or velum not plastic.
Silver rim is nailed-on (no screws)
Is this a toy?? any idea on the maker origins of this tiny instrument.
