This toy violin is made of brown painted steel, with a wooden neck and fittings. The bridge is of metal. The bow is made of stained wood. The inscription on the box says "The Pigmy Violin, A Real Violin in Miniature". This instrument looks to have been made by the same maker of KL 15.171, but is in much better condition.
