Comments:

Body painted with flowers on all sides. Graft between neck and pegbox. Dimensions from Schröder, who gave date as first half of 18th C. Ulferts 1997: rosette; table and back of birch; neck and fingerboard new in 1954. Attribution given there as “Gregory Karp (?), Königsberg (?), vor 1690”; A. Otterstedt (pvt. comm., 4/05) agrees.
