“Original neck, tailpiece and tuners”; but (gold-decorated) tailpiece does not appear to have 5 holes and pegbox definitely has only 4. Soundpost crack to table. Body length taken on back (from Da Salo listing); other dimensions from Jansen, who gives body length as 37.3 including button. Offered with optional extra of certificate by Nicolas Perrin, Paris. Bridge by Gand Freres (not original).
