Nicolas Bertrand / a Paris 1709 [handwritten?]
[private owner in Berlin, <1940 - c. 1980]
Owner to TGM, 3/03; M. Fleming to TGM, 2/03; T. Muthesius to TGM, 2/03
[Unpublished, from owner: front body only (color)]
Neck by Ingo Muthesius (1981), replacing what owner calls “a thick 6-string neck” (presumably not original) plus “very narrow” pegbox and “nice carved King David head” with copies of those on W. Kuijken’s Bertrand. Table has double purfling; also purfling around soundholes.
