Comments:

Egg n.d., p. 38; Ferdinandeum 1915, p. 9 (A19)

On museum’s website (FB+S, head front and side, rosette [color]); [by PT: front (color)]

Neck, fingerboard, and tailpiece new; pegbox original (probably for only 6 strings). Rosette. Converted to a cello c. 1800; apparently restored to viol in 1944 (repair label: “Repariert von Josef Krenn / Geigenmacher / in Wien 1944” [printed]; but Watchorn 2007, p. 121, says in 1937). Museum’s website calls this the only extant instrument by this maker.
