This violin would have been made for the Royal Household either late in the reign of Charles II (r. 1660-1685) or during the reign of James II (r. 1685-1688). The ornate carving on the back would have been highly fashionable at about this time, and it includes the Royal Stuart coat of arms before the royal arms were modified at the time of the accession of William III and Queen Mary in 1688.

If you have to pick a door, I'd say it's a decent bet that the banjo and fiddle door contains awesomeness....
violin and banjo... If I married someone who could play the banjo, I would be terribly happy:)
I would love to learn to play the Fiddle and the Banjo. I love Bluegrass music!

Violin, circa 1800. All I can find out about this unusually shaped violin is that it is in a Danish museum. Anyone with more information??

18th Century Violin Maker’s Shop by W. Foster Tracy, who specialized in making miniature instruments, primarily string instruments. This piece is registered as number 2 of 6 identical works which he constructed in 1979. The subject of this piece is a one-inch scale reproduction of what a violin maker’s studio might look like in the 18th century, and it is made all the more compelling because the scene itself is encased within an actual full-scale violin.

Hardanger fiddle (or in Norwegian: hardingfele) is a traditional stringed instrument used originally to play the music of Norway
This I'd a beautiful violin! A Hardanger fiddle made by Knut Gunnarsson Helland. Owned by Monica Skaro, who inherited it from her grandfather Knut Skaro from Geilo, Norway.
A hardingfele or hardanger fiddle is a violin with twice as many strings, a traditional instrument in Norway. Underneath the normal four strings are four or five other drone strings, which vibrate when the upper strings are played.
Hardanger fiddle : A Hardanger fiddle (or in Norwegian: hardingfele) is a traditional stringed instrument used originally to play the music of Norway. In modern designs, this type of fiddle is very similar to the violin, though with eight or nine strings (rather than four as on a standard violin).
This is a Hardanger fiddle. My family is from this region in Norway, and learning how to play one of these has always been a dream of mine!
