Comments:

Overhanging edges, very high table arching, slightly arched back without fold, cello-style neck, black-and-white decorations around table (2 rows) and pegbox: looks Bohemian to D. Zuchowicz. Head carved in primitive art style. 7th peg hole for sympathetic strings recently plugged to improve structural stability of head. Fine tuners on all bowed strings.
