To be sold with the certificate of Frederick W. Oster, Philadelphia, November 5, 2001, as follows: “The label indecipherable; the one-piece maple back of irregular broad curl; the maple ribs and head of similar wood; the two-piece spruce table of medium broad grain; the varnish of a reddish orange-brown color over a golden ground.
