Comments:

4-piece (?) table with painted purfling; 2-piece back (and ribs) of ash with real purfling. Neck and top block not original. Widths on back (more comparable to KOPEB 15?): 32.5/23.0/40.5. Repair label: “Reparerad 1752 Elias Carlander”; owner says “The belly is probably from this repair, as it differs from the back and ribs in quality...(Carlander was a violinist).”
