Hellwig 2011, p. 269

Hellwig 2011, p. 269 (underside of table); Muthesius 2006, p. 45 (front, body only)

Hellwig 2011, TieWV 022; not in Hellwig 1980, though owner reports attribution to Tielke confirmed by G. Hellwig subsequent to publication. TGM: 2-piece table with inked purfling and original bass bar in original position; 2-piece back (flat with fold; new wood for folded part) with no purfling. Had been converted into a cello when acquired; neck by Ingo Muthesius, lion head by Tilman Muthesius; fingerboard and tailpiece of tortoiseshell and ivory. Top block not original; cloth perimeter linings, no corner blocks. Hellwig 2011 gives no information (description, dimensions, etc.) except: especially interesting for bass bar in original form and position; attribution and dating based on soundhole shape and back.
