Rare Stainer Viola

I wonder is that especially unusual having wood of some 200 years previous to work with in Stainer's time?

From what comes to mind Stradivari would have been working with wood cut in his life time?

Everything about it cries 'Stainer', from these pics anyway and with my limited experience, and in such condition... how did it escape notice before?

Lots of questions............

The Brompton's viola wood has a latest ring about 110 years previous to the attributed making date.

The NMM violin, from 1668, also has a fairly distant latest ring date of about 90 years previous to the making of it,but the NMM tenow viola, made circa 1650, which has a one piece front, only about 30.
