Comments:

Table varnish badly worn in upper bout; large F-holes with large nicks, also very large carved head. Table has black and tan edging, no purfling; front edges of pegbox have relief carving (2 small circles alternating with a rectangle). Museum’s measurements evidently only to nearest half cm.
