Lightbulb a few more details..

The outer linings are smaller the normal size usually seen on German basses, allowing the ribs to move more.

The F-holes are the earlier Rubner and A.Meyer style, both neighboring Saxon makers at the time.

The import sticker is all that is inside but there is some torn paper near it where the makers label probably once was.

Also, here's a pic from a few years ago in concert, the Rubner is the second row, outside, just behind me with my Italian..
