Comments:

Converted to a cello; but back still faceted at neck (clear graft line to new neck heel). Very small soundholes, with lower eyes much larger than upper (damaged?) Perhaps cut down, as body length and depth much less than sister instrument from 1757, but widths very similar. Website string length 59.0-60.0.
