Here is another violin... is this actually considered double purfling? Like the strange-bodied violin I posted, I have no clue. The saddle sits on top and the bottom rib is two piece, so I can at least rule out Mittenwald. The ffs are super wide, but really symmetrical, I think... do I smell another factory fiddle?
GeorgeH posted a topic in The PegboxAre violins modeled after Maggini and da Salo with double purfling more or less desirable and/or marketable if they also have the decorative purfling inlays in the back? All other things being equal, would a violin that included the purfling inlays command a premium price over one without them? Or not? Which would you choose? In this case, I am referring to fine violins in the $20,000 - $30,000 price range. (An actual Maggini with the type of decorative purfling I am referring to is shown below)
