Taphouse 1905, p. 3; Loan 1904, p. 148

Catalogue: “treble...known in France as ‘Quinton’ or ‘Pardessus de Viol’.” No other Ouvrard dated 1740 currently known. But Taphouse 1905 (estate auction catalogue) lists as no. 8 “Viol, French, five strings, carved head, by Ouvrard, Paris, 1745,” so perhaps date is wrong either there or in the Loan 1904 catalogue. (Taphouse’s Ouvrard can’t be either PARIS 26 or PARIS 28—assuming they are in fact two different instruments—because they both have 6 strings, not 5.)
