Comments:

Not in Senn & Roy 1986. Body only, with back detached, when acquired by present owner, and remains unrestored. Table shortened at neck joint and edges worn (but purfling still present); 7-piece striped back (3 dark, 4 light) cut down (purfling is missing); 3-piece striped ribs reduced to fit back, so table overhangs them; dimensions are estimated for table prior to these alterations.
