Hammerich: “Diskant-Viola da gamba” but suggests A-tenor tuning; fingerboard of light-colored wood with ivory and inlaid dots of mother of pearl. Repaired by E. Hjorth, Kopenhagen, 1900. Martius & Schulze 1991: reading of date in museum catalogue untenable; label is damaged there. Tailgut and mother of pearl dots not original.
