Hellwig 2011, pp. 284 (front 7/8 and back [color]); Blagodatov 1972, back cover and between pp. 48-9 (head 3/4 and back); [unpublished, from museum: FB+S]

Hellwig 2011, TieWV 054; Hellwig 1980, no. 049 (not seen by him). Converted to a cello; neck narrowed; table not original; slightly arched back with fold; pegbox with open-carved back; dimensions 68.0, 30.0/24.5/36.4, 11.5, -. Tourin: elongated body. Table overhangs ribs; back does not, and fold has been straightened out. Neck not original. Hellwig 2011 adds: outline significantly altered; ribs probably original; 2-piece back is flat and folded (slightly), perhaps old. Neck narrowed for use as cello; peg for top string is closest to nut, and pegbox has been slightly shortened at neck end; all interior and exterior fittings non-original. Acquired by museum in 1930s (source unknown); especially nice lion’s head. No body dimensions in Blagodatov (except length “now 68”), so Tourin’s kept.
