Comments:

Gétreau 1996, p. 737

On museum’s website (FB+S, head side); Khazine 2004, p. 9 (head side); [by TGM: label (color)]

Fingerboard black with white perimeter. 2 pegs treble, 3 bass side. Tailpiece not original. Seen but not measured 8/11: label is badly torn up, with only date remaining legible. As of 9/14, website calls it “quinton de viole” and offers attribution (”incertaine”) to Salomon.
