Hellwig 2011, TieWV 144; Hellwig 1980, no. 121: 2-piece table with ivory edging and badly sunken arching; 2-piece back (arched) with ivory edging and painted double “purfling”, badly warped. Pegbox with open-carved back, inlaid fingerboard (ivory on tortoiseshell veneer with ivory frame); tailpiece [decoratively compatible but] not original, probably by Barak Norman (cf. Hebbert 2001, X:13). Dimensions 67.8, 30.0/22.5/35.5, 13.0, 67.5. Baines 1968: German, early 18th-C (but cites Hellwig’s attribution to Tielke). Painted double purfling plus ivory edging; carved neck heel. Fingerboard with floral marquetry in ivory and tortoiseshell; tailpiece with bird and butterfly in ebony and boxwood. Back badly warped. Pegs not original. On display 10/01: plain, flat back; no fold, but ribs get gradually shallower towards neck. Hellwig 2011 adds: double “purfling” on table also painted. Back widths 30.2/22.0/37.0. Dating by G. Hellwig; all details point to the later years of the Tielke shop. Fingerboard is reverse-color counterpart of TieWV 145.
