Herzog 2003, IT-05

Herzog 2003, IT-5 (FB+S); David 1999, p. 56 (front); [unpublished, from M. Fleming 10/08: FB+S]

Lira da gamba, modified to cello. Table with Herzog’s “El Greco”-style ridges extending inward from all four corners; soundholes originally a different shape (Tourin) [TGM: probably “3”]. Overhanging edges. Double purfling on front and back.
