Also nice is how it is left to the imagination exactly how long that bow is. Could be 5-10 feet.

So called "10 foot pole"?

Never seen a scroll like that on a cheap Mkn. Looks very amateurish. Or is the whole dreadful thing made by an amateur?

Hah! It’s also a mystery how the unopened soda can didn’t explode from impact! I think the seller did the 10 foot drop test on the violin and soda can, which at least means it is durable. “Drop test” approved!

Looks like the geared tuners are from a guitar, cut up with tin snips.  In keeping with the overall quality.
