Comments:

Hellwig 2011, TieWV 132; Hellwig 1980, no. 106. Detached neck, pegbox, and head (no body, original or otherwise). Pegbox has open-carved back and ivory edging; 7 sets of pegholes (NB), whose small diameter (± 0.6/0.47 cm), together with the lack of wear on the fingerboard), suggests the instrument was used for only a short time before this neck was removed. Fingerboard has tortoiseshell inlay on ivory veneer. Dating by G. Hellwig.
