Owner to TGM, 1+3/21
[Unpublished, from owner 3/21: F+B body only (color)]
Back and ribs of burr elm, with second fold in lower back. Dendrochronolgy gives date of 1675 for youngest year ring, but table may be a later addition; cross matches with instruments by Hill, Banks, Forster, and others. Converted to a viola and heavily restored, so interior evidence doesn’t suggest any possible maker.
