Focht 2006, p. 109

[Unpublished, from owner: front (color)]

Owner thinks probably originally a quinton (Tourin: possible d’amore). Focht 2006: Diskantgambe oder Viola d’amore; one of 4 extant instruments (others: 1702 viola, 1714 d’amore, 1714 cello). Body very similar to 1714 d’amore (6+6) = Nuremberg MI 208), but soundholes different.
