Interesting that an orchestra player could afford so many violins; must have lived out of a cardboard box and eaten ramen noodles...any thoughts on this one?

There's a lot of toner on that label! I bet that if we could get down near the surface and glance the light off it we'd see a visible thickness. (I'm pretty sure the paper isn't brown, though, Lyndon. It looks more like the lighting is off, given the red cast to that yellow varnish)

I bet, too, that an Italian maker would put "Venezia" on his labels, not "Venedig". :)
