Comments:

Hammerich 1911, p. 93; Hammerich 1909, p. 78

From museum (via M. Herzog) 10/15 (FB+S, head [color, all at angles]); Hammerich 1911, p. 93 (front 7/8); Hammerich 1909, p. 78 (front 7/8)

Not in Senn & Roy 1986. Hammerich: strong and careful construction, beautiful wood and excellent varnish; fingerboard and tailpiece inlaid with striped wood; suggests low G tuning. Repaired by E. Hjorth, Kopenhagen, 1901. Tourin’s dimensions (“rough”): 87.0, 38.0/28.7/49.0, 18.4, 84.0; shape “big, with bold curves”. T. Muthesius to TGM, 4/13: “I am quite convinced it is from the same workshop as the other Stainers ... the same neck construction and the same template for the C holes....” Museum’s data sheet dimensions 86.0, -/-/50.0, 18.0, 84.0; those used above are from a data sheet by Christian Laborie (2003); his back widths 38.3/27.8/49.1. Purfling of ebony and maple; neck not original (grafted) but lion head is.
