Comments:

Not in Hellwig 1980 or Hellwig 2011. Extensive ivory inlay ornamentation, including on edges of ribs and back, also acanthus designs on neck, fingerboad, and tailpiece; scroll has ivory plaques on sides instead of ears; rosette with (unidentified) French coat of arms. Very similar to Brussels 229. Table may not belong to rest of instrument; highly curved soundholes not in Tielke’s style. Lost since World War II.
