Brompton’s 6/21/11, lot 247 (online catalogue)

Brompton’s 6/21/11, lot 247 (F+B, head side, rosette [color]); [unpublished, from M. Fleming 4/11: FB+S, body only (color)]

Brompton’s 2011/06/21, lot 247

Body has normal upper corners, plus pair of dimples just below soundholes; back and ribs of bird’s-eye maple. Rosette; soundholes have lower eyes only; no purfling, but table has thin black edging. At one time had sympathetic strings. Plain black fingerboard and tailpiece, latter flat with 7 keyhole slots; blond pegs. Perhaps Bohemian, 2Q18C? (Seen by Fleming as consultant in preparation for auction at Brompton’s.) Brompton’s online listing gives BL 72.1, SL 63.6 cm; notes “repairs to table, ribs and back” and “cracks in back by sound post area”; sold for £6,000.
