[Unpublished, from owner 8/16: F+B, F 3/4 (color)]

When purchased, had been converted to a viola (probably long ago and much played that way), but without cutting down ribs; restored by Christian Brosse 2007 (new neck without opening body). Originally had rosette, but closed up in viola conversion and not recreated. Attribution based on close similarity to José Vázquez’s Maussiell treble.
