Comments:

Not in Senn & Roy 1986. Rosette. Fingerboard and tailpiece have diagonal ends. F-holes not like Stainer’s (longer and narrower). Attribution to “Marcus Stainer, Kufstein, 1630” (per G. Niggemann) problematic: Marcus Stainer lived c. 1633-93 (no relation to Jacob); worked in Laufen from 1655, but no evidence of him in Kufstein; such labels now considered fakes.
