Comments:

Hellwig 2011, TieWV 081; Hellwig 1980, no. 071. JVdGSA: 3-piece table with painted double “purfling”; 2-piece back (arched); bottom rib perhaps not original. Peg for top string is closest to nut. Dimensions 66.3, 30.0/21.5/36.7, 12.2, 65.0. Muthesius 2006: 3-piece table, bent not carved. Hellwig 2011 adds: neck graft. Back widths 29.9/21.6/36.8. “Gebrauchsinstrument,” i.e. lacks fancy decoration.
