NMM 4542. Pochette labelled Joachim Tielke, Hamburg, 1671, possibly made for Tielke by Jacque Regnau[l]t, Paris, 1671. Handwritten label: Joachim Tielke / in Hamburg i671. One-piece ebony back, neck, pegbox, and finial. Twisted silver-wire trim. Carved heart below fingerboard. Length: 409 mm. Ex coll.: W. E. Hill & Sons, London. Board of Trustees, 1988.

Friedemann Hellwig ("Hamburg and Paris: Joachim Tielke's Pochettes," Galpin Socity Journal 62, 2009, pp. 183-190) has observed common features of construction in pochettes signed by the luthier Jacque Regnau[l]t and those bearing Joachim Tielke's labels, resulting in his conclusion that these instruments were most likely made by one person—Regnau[l]t—for sale in Tielke's shop. Hellwig also suggests that NMM 4543 may have been made by Regnau[l]t.
