[Unpublished, from M. Herzog 8/03: FB+S (color)]

Bonhams 2003/09/08, lot 12

1-piece back; single purfling front and back. “Converted to four strings with later neck and scroll.” Unstrung and largely unglued when seen by M. Herzog. Montagu 2005: “a Salomon Quinton...with a later neck and scroll...attracted no interest” (i.e., did not sell).
