Moens 2004, esp. p. 90; Mahillon 1900, 3:57

On museum’s website (front [color]); Moens 2004, p. 91 (FB+S)

2 pegs treble, 3 bass side. No label, but attributed to Zenatto by Mahillon. However, he calls it a “grande contrebasse” (unlike 1435-37, “grande basse de viole de gambe”). Moens: 4-piece table (only middle 2 cut on quarter) with crudely carved arching and double purfling (each only a single black line); 6-piece back; pegbox very like those of 1433 and 1437 but slightly larger. Extremely large and heavy.
