Comments:

Pointed corners, overhanging edges, square shoulders, no back fold. Blond fingerboard and tailpiece with inlaid geometric designs, probably not original. Tail gut. Website credits attribution to Charles Beare; dendrochronology not possible since table has 4 pieces (2 main + 2 wings), none wide enough.
