MODERN CRAFTSMEN COPY RARE INLAID FIDDLE

Consisting of more than 10,000 separate pieces, an elaborately inlaid example of the viola da gamba, a six-stringed ancestor of the modern violoncello, was exhibited recently in New York City. The rare musical instrument is a copy of one made by Joachim Tielbe, a German craftsman, in 1690 and now treasured in the National Museum at Munich.
