Regis Posted February 5, 2005 Report Share Posted February 5, 2005 Is it safe to assume (ass-u-me??) that any well know (typically $20K+) makers' violin at Tarisio auction would not be started or have a reserve in the hundreds of dollars. Regardless of condition, as long as it is all there. I would think that it is in their interest as well, to place authenic instruments in the correct (higher end) auctions. I could believe that a copy of high quality could start low but, not the "real thing". Tarisio seems to be pretty carefull to say "Labeled ........" rather than saying "Made By ........" when a high profile name is used. I think the only thing Tarisio and e-bay have in common is that there are 'NO' $75,000 violins sold for $750. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
