The label tells us these were made in Shanghai and they were notable for being close to Concert size. I have seen a number of Larks with floating bridges and tailpieces, including some 6 string "mini" Guitars I have also seen some Chinese made Ukuleles branded Sweet Tone, also made in Shanghai that appear to be from the same factory and it might be the case that this factory is still going but only makes Violins now?

The size in particular makes me sure these are not from the same Shanghai Factory as the Skylarks and this is the only Chinese maker of the period that I have seen making anything approaching a Pineapple
