Hellwig 2011, TieWV 167; not in Hellwig 1980. 2-piece table with purfling, more fully arched than usual for Tielke (perhaps therefore by J.H. Goldt); 2-piece back, arched and slightly bent, with carved ornaments glued on at top and bottom but no purfling; ribs with ivory edging at corners and purfling along both these and upper and lower edges. Pegbox with ivory edging, carved sides, and open carved back. Back widths 32.1/23.4/39.3. Dendrochronology (M. Beuting, 2007) gives dates of 1716 (treble) and 1718 (bass) for youngest growth rings on table. Restored 1985 by Paul Reichlin: new neck and all fittings; decoration of fingerboard and tailpiece based on TieWV 121. Back, ribs, pegbox, and head all clearly from Tielke shop, but table arching and C-holes are atypical, likely from after J.H. Goldt took over. Tone said to be wonderfully even, open, and strong.
