Comments:

Restored by Bernd Hiller, Markneukirchen, c. 2006. Table (with oval rosette and blond/black edging) and neck (including blond fingerboard and tailpiece) not original. Per owner, first belonged to Joachim Carl Count of Maltzan (1733-1817), the Prussian ambassador in London (1766-1782) and a gambist and subscriber to the Bach Abel concerts. He bought it upon returning to Breslau in 1784; in 1786 he moved to Militsch (Milicz), Silesia, now Poland, some 55 km northwest of Breslau, succeeding his father (Joachim Andreas II) as Reichsgraf.
