7/0 flat back Viola d'amore
Unknown luthier, 18th century

The instrument below is from the muscial instrument collection of the Historical Museum in Basel, Switzerland, ex. Paul Sacher collection. It is an instrument with seven playing strings, but without sympathetic strings. The viola d'amore's typical rosette lies here underneath the fingerboard.
