kathyr Posted May 20, 2005 Report Share Posted May 20, 2005 I have a Giovan paolo Maggini violin brefcia 16 stamped 94 written. I am looking for any info regarding this instrument. I know He died in 1632. Could this have been made by an apprentice. Details match his style, honey/red color, 1 piece back, double purling. I am interested in a value for insurance purposes. Would like to leave to my grandaughter as a family heirloom. tone quality is beautiful. very rich and mellow. Have never heard such sound. I played for 25 years and never heard another instrument like this one. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
