You can also support your opinion with facts as you see them, as long as you make no reference to the individual or company listing the instrument or use hearsay in your argument. You cannot say for example that such and such an instrument is not authentic because you know the individual listing the instrument is not trustworthy or you believe the company routinely uses false descriptions of its instruments. That will get you banned. Similarly, you can defend the authenticity of an instrument with the facts as you see them, as long as personal attacks and hearsay are not used. For example, you could refer to the shape of the f holes in support of a certain origin, but what you cannot do is attack any individuals that may hold a different opinion.

modern Italian violin from 1958 ORIGINAL?

Recommended Posts


Dear Forum readers,

I have come accross an Itlaian violin from 1958 on Ebay.

The label reads: Luigi Auciello Milano anno 1958.


Bonhams sells a Luigi Auciello violin from 1958 which is here:


Apparently, the original Auciello labels figure the luthier's address as well, but the one on ebay does not.

Also the varnish is a different colour, the one on Bonhams is an orange red and the one on ebay looks different.

Would you say that this still could be an original piece or is it a copy made by some Asian copiers?

What makes me think that it could still be an original violin is that faking a 1958 violin might not pay off as much as if you copied a late 19th or early 20th Italian maker? Or has faking gone this far?
