    Vietnamese? MOP (or faux) body binding, fair amount of bling, though not the frequently-found "vine" on the fingerboard. Oddly-shaped scroll. Is the back inlaid? Somebody's put damping grommets on the strings, usually the sign of a knowledgeable player -- though knowledgeable players don't regularly have eBay "Antoniotsai" mandolins.

    Others with more expertise will have to develop the ID further.

    I can't say if they are worth the asking price or not.

    Welcome to the cafe!
    That is not a high dollar instrument. New it probably cost $300, and it isn't worth that.
    Case might be worth $30.
    All together, maybe $100?
