On museum’s website (front [color])

Kinsky 1912: “Eine Uebergangsform zwischen Gamba und Violoncell; vielleicht eine Arbeit von Sympert Niggell.” F-holes reminiscent of Stainer. Pegbox and head not original. Square shoulders, slightly pointed body corners. Sculpted tailpiece with diagonal upper edge.
