Comments:

Hammerich: early 19th-century Norwegian work; repaired by E. Hjorth, Kopenhagen, 1904. Tourin: 2-piece table and back, both without purfling. Crude F-holes, neck graft at pegbox; gilded woman’s head and gilded instruments carved on back of pegbox. Unsigned announcement of new acquisitions within the past year by the Copenhagen museum (in “Notizen,” in Zeitschrift der Internationalen Musikgesellschaft 6 (1904-05), 261) includes this one, with a date “ca. 1815” and the comment, “In Norwegen waren also die Gamben im 19. Jahrh. noch nicht ausgestorben.” Vannes says this viol is “sans lieu ni date”; Lind not in Lütgendorff. Likely the same person whose epitaph was published in Personalhistorisk tidsskrift 6 (1903), 32: “Below rests Gulbrand Lind, born in Drammen in 1776, died in Vestfossen 1859. Poor in gold, but rich in spirit and heart, he was greatly revered and loved by all those who knew him.”
