Comments:

2 pegs treble, 3 bass side. Not in Tourin’s ViolList due to late date. Website (translated): “both the way the neck is cut and the lower end of the very narrow pegbox indicate an instrument to be held under the chin.” Maker must be father, active in Brussels 1901, because son with same name was working at Lyon & Healey in Chicago 1908-12 (per Vannes).
