-  Provenance: Sumner Healey, New York, 25 Apr. 1923. Formerly in the Tolbecque collection. This probably refers to the collection of Auguste Tolbecque, 1830-1919, Niort, France. Tolbecque was a composer, stringed instrument maker, cellist, and collector of musical instruments. In 1879, the Belgian government purchased many instruments from the Tolbecque collection for the Brussels Conservatory. This instrument probably comes from a second collection of instruments which was dispersed in 1922 along with Tolbecque's library.
