Table with rosette and backwards C-shaped soundholes. Everything else very possibly by Franciolini, except tailpiece probably 18th-C., for an instrument with 3 strings. Label hard to read; everyone uses Valdrighi’s transcription (1884), but whole thing open to doubt. He also says back is walnut, with geometrical inlays.
