Comments:

Table off body when acquired by museum in 1989, and still when seen in 1995. 1-piece back with no purfling or fold. Fingerboard and tailpiece probably not original; pegs don’t match. Modern violin bridge. Otherwise in good and original condition. Website dimensions: 32.3, 15.0/9.7/19.1, 4.9, 32.8.
