Described as: “Bass Gambe, antikes Instrument aus Mirecourt, von Lamberte [recte: Laberte]-Humbert Freres. Gebaut laut Zettel im Instrument 1910 oder 1914. Instrument wurde auf der Internationalen Ausstellung in Brüssel prämiert (Grand Prix). [Recte: Firma wurde 1910 prämiert; Instrument wurde 1914 gebaut.] Reparatur laut weiteren Zettel 1929.” No bids received by close of auction. Laberte-Humbert 1912 catalogue found online at www.luthiers-mirecourt.com lists price for their “Violes de Gambe” as 500 [francs] but gives no further details, unlike viola d’amore illustrated on the same page.
