Gand and Bernardel Violin in The Pegbox Posted 10 hours ago · Report reply 26 minutes ago, Delabo said: Maybe the information I have is incorrect and the violin they have with an identical label to the OP's is also fake ? They believe that their violin represents a "Lupot Gand-Bernadel pattern". Did such a model ever exist ? I see no reason to conceal the link since it's on a public website : http://www.isabellesviolins.com/gandbernardel/?photo=SideLeft That label is authentic, as is the violin, though it's in rather poor condition and has little of its original varnish. The number and the date are beautifully scripted and legible, and the label also doesn't have a black border. It doesn't look anything like the OP violin (though for some reason we haven't seen the front of that one), but entirely like the 1866 example I posted.
