Comments:

Museum’s website identifies as “reconstitution de ténor de viole, anonyme, 19e siècle”; “etiquette fausse”. Back of walnut, cello-style neck, 4 tuning gears. Total length 112.0 cm, body length approx. 70 cm, judging by meter stick in photo: bass rather than tenor? Very large F-holes; steeply sloping shoulders; lower bout much wider than upper.
