Comments:

Nilsson 1988: in poor condition, “impossible to repair”. Table has brown-and-white edging plus double purfling; fingerboard and tailpiece have similar edging plus a line of chevrons down the center. Boivie 1921, p. 58: edging “of bone and a darker wood probably ebony”; pegbox with carved back ends in a “somewhat roughtly worked” dragon head.
