Comments:

Measurements taken on the back; upper width taken at corners (not necessarily maximum). Table in 3 or 5 pieces, with large ornament and double purfling. Back has BN monogram, double purfling, large red flowers below fold and at bottom. Black fingerboard and tailpiece. Neck and head seem not original (to G. Liedmeier). “Repaired by / Edward Withers, / 24 Wardock Street, London W”. (Not in Hebbert 2001.)
