This violin has a soundboard of spruce; ribs, back, neck and scroll of sycamore; fingerboard, tailpiece, soundboard protector of ebony; pegs of rosewood; endbutton of boxwood with inlaid ebony and mother-of-pearl. The soundboard grain is bookmatched, of variable ring growth spacing, and affected by tree damage on the bass upper bout and just above the treble f-hole. The soundboard has purfling of ebony/sycamore/ebony and there are plugged holes at the top and bottom of the soundboard. There is some slight marking and ingrained dirt where the chin has rested on the soundboard. The ribs and back are of medium figured sycamore, and the lower bout rib is a single piece. The back is of two pieces, the figure going up towards the neck in the centre and down at the edges, with ebony/sycamore/ebony purfling. Extra pieces were added to the lower bouts to provide enough width. The scroll has been grafted onto the neck, but it appears that the scroll and neck are from the same piece of wood. The neck is 131mm long; fingerboard 266mm long, 23.3mm wide at the nut and 41.4mm wide at the bottom. Soundboard arch 16mm; back arch 14mm. Repair History: Some repaired damage, a number of cracks have been fixed, pieces have been added to replace damaged edges at the lower bouts, and an added piece to repair damage to the lower hole of the treble f-hole.
