How does the auction house define the word Good, Very Good, Fine, Very Fine, Superb, Rare, Interesting, Important, and so on?

For instance, what qualifies this violin as a "Superb violin by P Guarneri", rather than a "Very Fine Violin by P Guarneri"?

where does "Stradivari without a life of slavery" fit in that spectrum? :)

Hanging on my wall when it's not on my shoulder :lol:

"a Strad without a lifetime of slavery"

Obviously not as memorable as I thought!

Well, I remembered it :P   Great slogan, BTW.
