Comments:

[Unpublished, from owner 1/14: F, F body, head FB+S, table ornament, bottom rib, many other details (color)]; [unpublished, from A. Rice 6/03: FB+S, head, table ornament (color, blurred)]

Modern neck and pegbox, but Monical says head is original; 2-piece table and back. Not included in Hebbert 2003b, p. 39. Table ornament featuring single very large flower matches that of DA’s anon. English bass; double purfling on table and back, no other decoration on back. Semi-light fingerboard and tailpiece with perimeter purfling.
