2-piece back with heavy (original?) varnish (and paint?) hiding the center joint. Small pegs with large white pips (original). Coolie head, carved pegbox. Tailpiece not original. Restored by Judith Kraft. Body widths from Renard’s website, taken on the back; date originally given as 1745 but now changed.
