Christie’s 2011/04/29, lot 90

Christie’s: “pardessus,” “From the estate of a professional musician”; 1-piece back; 2 pegs treble, 3 bass side; body length taken on back. Clear graft between pebox and neck in an unusual place, just below lowest peghole. TGM: soundholes and carved head very similar to TOKYO 1, a pardessus by Simon Gilbert (Metz, 1752); similar soundholes but different head on Gilbert pardessus of 1730 (?) at Harvard.
