Notes:"The bodies of the 'Dumas' and 'Delmas' are made upon a virtually identical form, the most apparent difference occurring in the shape and size of the corners. However, the 'Delmas' is more carefully finished and the curves leading in and out of the C-bouts are more gracefully treated. . . .
Very few of Maggini’s bass instruments still have their original heads and the “Delmas” is exceptional in being the only example of the medium size with an original head. . . ."
