  1. From left to right: FXS- Makers mark | Lion mark- London assay office mark for sterling silver| 925-Silver fineness mark|Cat- Assay office mark for London|Date letter mark
  2. I dont think they are french hallmarks. I used to collect sterling silverware and they are the hallmarks for English silver in my opinion.The cat indicates London silver and the circle is the year and in this case is between 1889 to 1949
  3. hahah...knew this would be asked. I cant go to a dealer with pictures . And dont know enough to write in this forum. So just need your advise !
  4. No, if you are versed on these violins, does it look authentic?
  5. Folks, Need your advise.There is a Curletto Anselmo violin on ebay with a certificate by Guiseppe Stefanini. Can anyone shed some light on it ? It apparently sells on Tarisio for $20k+ and the seller has opened the bid at 6750 with no bites so far.I have been looking to buy a pre war Italian violin by a renowned maker and maybe this might be the one. Any help is appreciated as I dont think anybody might bid and I could get it at the opening price.
