Century+ Old Bulgarian Guitar Photos

I was picking up a guitar at my favorite guitar tech's place, and he told me he had something "very cool" to show me. It turned out to be a guitar from Bulgaria that is 100 years old give or take a few. It belonged to the grandfather of the current owner. It had American acoustic strings on it, so the sound wasn't the best, but I just fell in love with it at first site, and wanted to share the pics with you. I'm even betting that Frater probably knows what it is. The body shape reminds me of some of Orville Gibson's early guitars, and the butterfly theme was carried on by Claude Patenotte in his very Eastern Tzigane Model 260.

I'd be curious if anyone has ever seen anything like this before.
I've never been a guitar player, but I've played one on stage.
