'Narrow shape with out-swelling lower part. Body of boxwood, crudely carved in relief with small figures, musical instruments and animals. The f-holes recall those of a violin. The stained oak fingerboard is inlaid with a simple pattern in light wood. The finial is shaped like a fish's head.' - Anthony Baines:Catalogue of Musical Instruments in the Victoria and Albert Museum - Part II: Non-keyboard instruments(London, 1998), p. 22.
