Comments:

Martius: body shape like Ciciliano, with forward-sloping shoulder ribs, overhanging edges, and painted purfling and rosette; varnish removed; perhaps only back and ribs are old (18C). According to museum’s website (5/2003): “Neubau 20. Jh. (?)... Alter Zargenkranz und Boden.” Also MIMO, 6/2016: “20. Jahrhundert (?)”. (Tourin: German)
