Comments:

On loan to Folger Consort, but not played. Table has very wide grain; may be 18th C., rest 19th C. Back is wider than table, flat but no fold (ribs are only 1 cm less deep at neck). Heavy interior blocks, linings, and bracing (5 crossbars); tailgut; plain cello-style pegbox, tone and response also cello-like; bridge by Monical.
