I really like the design. 
Very simple and stark, and I am guessing a student model from lack of sympathetic strings. .
I wonder when it is from.
From the shape and fret type, I would think it to be older. (1930s?)
It is similar in style to the one in the picture of young Raviji in the photo below.
