Case, Violin

A black canvas covered violin case with a red fabric interior. A piece of black felt cloth accompanies the case, with one end slightly longer than the other to accommodate the shape of the violin. The exterior is in relatively poor condition, the edges particularly worn. The card framework is exposed. The edges have been stitched. The interior has a top compartment which contained several of the related items. The inside of the lid has leather tabs to secure the bow, and small wooded blocks to support the bow. There is a handle on the side, and two different locking mechanisms which no longer function.
