Cittern - da Salo 4 course
These pictures show an instrument lavishly decorated. All decorations are in addition to the basic price.
The body, neck & pegboard of this instrument were made from heavily figured maple, boxwood pegs with ebony pips, pearwood and parchment rose, other fittings in ebony, bone, boxwood. The decorations closely resemble the original e.g.. turned balusters at the neck/body joint are topped with boxwood flowers, the pegbox has a hook on the back, relief carving, and is surmounted by a carved female head with a typical hair style and ruff collar.
