[From M. Fleming, 4/11: FB+S, head 3/4 (color)]

Striped back (5 pieces) with diamond-pattern decoration on all dark stripes in all three bouts (upper, middle, and lower), and more diamond-pattern decorations on ribs (upper and lower bouts only); single purfling on perimeter of table, and around each dark stripe on back. Scroll is open not only from sides but also from front and top; very similar to instrument owned by Mrs. Beare (both have grafts between pegbox and neck, but not to scroll). Body resembles STOCK 29 (pseudo-Jaye) and B. Franklin’s pseudo-Boivin: outline, soundholes (wide, with eyes below corners and treble less vertical), and striped back.
