Comments:

Not in Tourin’s ViolList due to late date. Online record gives identical dimensions; adds “copy of a French instrument?” (and much else, in Norwegian); acquired in 1967. Maker must be father, active in Brussels 1901, because son with same name was working at Lyon & Healey in Chicago 1908-12 (per Vannes).
