Kinsky 1912, 2:445

On museum’s website (front [color]); Kinsky 1912, 2:44 (front)

Converted from a viola d’amore, with new neck, head, fingerboard and tailpiece; ivory pegs. Kinsky 1912: “Diskant-Viola da braccio”; website: “aus einer kleinen Viola d’amore umgearbeitet.” Supposedly lost since World War II, but if so what is source for color photo on website?
