  1. @Wood Butcher Can't tell how it looks under the edge of the belly.... @martin swan Very interesting stuff. I think I heard enough to know that it's better to stay away from this violin. Thank you all for your insights, very much appreciated!
  2. If it is a fake then the one who fabricated it did put a lot of effort into it, there is a stamp below the fingerboard and also (at least) two stamps inside the violin, which I think can't be put there without opening the violin...what do you think?
  3. Thanks for the insights! One of the last real Gordge cases, was lucky to get one!
  4. Thank you for the information! I already had a look at that homepage but I couldn't find any information about his son, Amati Mangenot. I got some additional information from two books but without knowing that maker, I can't tell if this violin is authentic. I was hoping somebody knows that particular instrument or saw a similar one (or at least one with stamps).
  5. Opinions and expertise to this violin will be very appreciated. The seller (a violin dealer) says he bought the violin last year in Paris from a violinist who is from Bordeaux. The violin is in very good condition, the bass bar/bridge was renewed. I found 6 stamps on the violin, outside 4, inside 2 (could be more stamps inside). Label says: AMATI MANGENOT, LUTHIER Copie Stainer (handwritten) à BORDEAUX l'An 19...... 44 (handwritten on the dotted line) 25 pictures on Google drive: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/1OWGQoAM9_-Ce-2bJSLTuEglTak7XsXJ3 Thanks for the help and best regards, Jehi
