  1. Who is Pietro Antonius?

    Thank you for the advice. I will set about taking the photos. Regards, Don. See photos at the bottom of the page - 'How to photograph an instrument of identification purpose' (Link below). Thanks.
  2. Hi, Thank you for the info/advice on posting in a more appropriate forum. If only I knew how I will attempt to get this moved to the post on Who is Pietro Antonius? Sorry, if I have messed the page up with so many pictures. Many thanks for your patience. Don As advised I have taken some photos of my violin that has a name label of - "Pietro Antonius dalla Costa fecit in Treviso Anno 1760". Any, and alll information, advice, opinions are greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance. Regards, Don

  4. Who is Pietro Antonius?

    I have the same fiddle here with the label inside "Pietro Antonius dalla Costa fecit in treviso anno 1760", although it is a bit hard to read due to age. How do I know if it is the real thing, or a copy? When I brought it 23 years ago I was told it had been stored in an atic for about the previous 60 years. I am in Tasmania, Australia. I am no violin expert and have definately not mastered playing it, tried for several years; but time or lack of time has got the better of me Any help or advice appreciated, and I not the above comments. Thanks. Don
