Moens 2004 (citing oral communication from Peter Klein, Hamburg): dendrochronology suggests table made from a tree not cut down until after 1875; wood from same tree used for nos. 1417-20 and 1422. Awouters dimensions 60.5, 27.9/21.3/34.1, 11.1, 63.6. Museum’s website: “viole bâtarde, auteur inconnu”. Mahillon: viole bâtarde, label “Zanetto [sic?] fece in Treviso”; table with double purfling.
