Comments:

Moens 2004, esp. pp. 87-90; Mahillon 1900, 3:56-57

On museum’s website (front [color]); Moens 2004, p. 89 (head back 3/4, neck heel); Baines 1966, pl. 58 (front)

2 pegs treble, 3 bass side. Moens: label (placed beneath treble soundhole) nearly identical to 1433, but instruments very different (outline, F-holes, purfling [double on table, single on back], interior fittings, presence of overhanging edges), also better qualtiy craftsmanship. Neck and pegbox, inlaid fingerboard and tailpiece don’t belong to body. Baines 1966: double bass.
