Notes:

"Die im Jahre 1669 gebaute Geige wurde von dem unermüdlich nachforschenden Geigenmacher Gärtner auf einer Reise durch Italien aufgefunden und erworben, und zwar - es ist bei dem Alter des Instruments ein Wunder zu nennen - in dem Urzustande, nie geöffnet, mit dem ersten Bassbalken von Stainers Hand und ohne Risse oder sonstige Beschädigungen."
