    By the way what is the difference in meaning between the terms "ascribed to" and "attributed to"?

    I noticed that all the bows are "stamped, maker name" instead of "by, maker name", i.e no guarantee by Tarisio on attribution.  There seems to be a lot of action already, so maybe this is not a concern.

    This is the usual case for all instrument lots in T2 Auctions.

    Thank you for sharing your insight and thoughts on this violin.

     

    May I ask your opinion as to what constitutes a composite component verses a replacement part? For example, would it be normal industry practice to identify a violin as a composite, even if the replacement part was expertly made specifically for the instrument?

     

    You are correct. I think Ben is describing the violin itself as "composite."
