Smile Carlo Loveri, Naples c.1870 (attr.)(In Restoration,PA)

This Bass is clearly a Neapolitan/Gagliano School Double Bass from the 19th century attributed to Carlo Loveri. The F-holes are nearly identical to the 1873 Carlo Loveri we had a few years back. The Scroll/Pegbox however has been attributed to Fleta in Spain. Currently in Restoration.

String Length; 41 1/2"
Top Length; 44 3/4"
Upper Bout; 19 7/8 (Slightly Cut)
Middle Bout; 14"
Lower Bout; 27"
Ribs (not including plates); 8 1/2", 7 7/8" at neck.
