These two bass viols both have dubious labels bearing the name John Roos. This falsification was probably intended to suggest the renowned 16th-century English viol maker John Rose. More likely is that these are late 17th-century viols by a Dutch maker (perhaps someone from the school of the famous Pieter Rombouts of Amsterdam). Unusually, the seven-stringed instrument still has its original carrying case.
