If you play the violin, it's inevitable: you will likely receive some violin-related knick-knacks as gifts, or you may even buy a few for yourself.
Behold, for example, this lovely row of violin-shaped glass bottles that lines a shelf at Metzler Violins:
For this vote I'd like to concentrate on objects have a violin shape in them but whose function is not as a violin or instrument.
For example, in my kitchen I have a violin-shaped cutting board, cookie cutter and a mug that has a rather curvy violin as its handle. I also have an apron with violins all over it. I have a violin necklace, a violin pin, and a violin scarf.
Out and about in the world, I've seen violin-shaped purses and wallets, violin-shaped boxes of candy, violin-shaped flash drives, clocks, watches, keychains, jewelry boxes, pencils -- heck, even a swimming pool and violin-shaped building!
