This was my Grandfathers...I know very little else about it!
The graphic picture I found on a website, it is exactly like mine.
In the inside it has printed JM Dolnanich, Cleveland Ohio. I wish I knew more on this. Please advise me if you know anything!!
What is this instrument? How old is it?

    Good morning! It's a tamburica like you said... It's similar to a Greek bouzouki (my family has one of these, its cool looking too!), mandolin, cittern. Cleveland was a place were there was a lot of Croatian settlers. There were many makers of this instrument there. It can't be real real old because it was made in the US (maybe 140 years?). I could not find anything on the maker, is the spelling correct?
