It has a super shallow seat tube for an artistic bicycle, but geometries have changed over the years.

I don't think it's a cycle ball bike, as claimed by the blog, as on those the seatpost sits inside the top tube (and has for a long time).

It also may be a Polo or "Reigen" (same sex couple formation riding) specific frame.

None of the parts are original.
