Comments:

Sandys & Forster 1864, 198

[from J-M Renard: F, F+B body only, head 3/4 (color)]; [by PT: F+B (color)]

Elaborate picture covers entire back (bearded man seated under canopy: Moses, after Michelangelo’s sculpture); inlaid fingerboard (lacking upper portion); 2 pegs treble, 3 bass side. According to Sandys & Forster, “a salamander, the device of Francis I, was carved on the neck”; their source was Choron’s Dictionnaire historique des muisiciens, artistes, at amateurs, morts ou vivants (2/1817).
