Original gut strings on a little old violin

1/8 violin, seen by chance in a workshop in Italy.

1/8 violin, seen by chance in a workshop in Italy.

What can we see from this?

Same gauges as big violins, so violin strings. 1st missing. The 4th has as a core a 1st string. So, strings from the 20th century.

2nd and 3rd medium twist angle, 4th core low twist.

...Damn, I forgot to look at the tailpiece string...😳
