Skjerne 1931, p. 216; Lütgendorff 1922, 2:480

Skjerne 1931, p. 219 (front, back 3/4); Lütgendorff 1922, 1:163 (back 3/4)

Not in Senn & Roy 1986. Striped back and ribs, rosette; lion head with some old gilding. Estimated date based on Benjamin Schröder’s statement that labels with only 2 printed digits used from c. 1659-1662 (but these spelled place name “Absom”: did Skjerne mistranscribe?).
