Comments:

7-piece table, 2-piece back, both with single purfling (perhaps not original); no decoration except double V at top of back. New wood above upper corners of back in such a way as to suggest C-bouts were once about 3 cm larger vertically; C. Coin thinks body has been cut down, but based on photos J. Pringle thinks outline (and wood) looks early 17C English as is, with head from a Bertrand viol. Pegbox back mostly plain; plugged hole for 7th peg nearest to head; neck not original, somewhat cello-style, and string spacing is narrow (3.3 cm at nut); not set up, so string length unavailable. 2x6 tuning pins inserted in a V pattern into bottom rib/block for sympathetic strings, with hitchpins at top of table, under fingerboard.
