    Default Enclosed tuning head

    Does anyone know anything about a German(?) made mandolin with the tuners enclosed in the head? Floral design on the back of the head.

    Without pictures nobody will be able to offer any real assistance.

    It sounds to me like you are describing a Stromberg-Voisinet mandolin- made in Chicago. Have a search at Google for photos. They were made in the 20s and early 30s before the company renamed itself Kay Kraft and then just Kay. Here is one on Reverb:
