I believe you will find that the purfling has nothing to do wit “5 ply purfling”, rather it has the purfling blacks which were stained such that the middle of the “black” stripe has remained grey. This is characteristic of Markneukirchen area Dutzendarbeit of the late 19th C

I believe this is actually 4-ply purfling, with all plys made equal width.  Two white center plys were used to achieve a wider white "center" purfling.  The technique was used because it was easier/faster to make all purfling strips the same width.

I am thinking that the photos might be distorted for your review; as dendro leans towards it being an 18th century instrument.
