Comments:

Wackernagel: “Viola d’amore...ohne Resonanzsaiten”. Body shape perhaps altered. Internal blocks and bars not original, also neck, pegbox, head, fittings, and varnish. 1-piece table with triple purfling; 2-piece back without purfling and ribs (perhaps cut down?) of bird’s-eye maple. Tourin: arm viol?
