Hellwig 2011, TieWV 113; not in Hellwig 1980. 2-piece table with wings in lower bouts, with no features of Tielke’s work except 5-ply purfling; somewhat reminiscent of J. G. Mothe but not definitely attributable to him either. 2-piece back, arched, both with purfling and ivory edging (both also on rib corners). Neck not original; due to an earlier cello conversion, only upper part of pegbox (with carved sides and open-carved back but lacking its original ivory edging) is original; unclear if it originally had 6 or 7 pegs; female head is later, with much darker varnish. Back widths 31.5/23.0/39.3. Acquired in 1980 by present owner; previous owners unknown.
