Unique purfling on labeled Nicolaus Amati violin


Recommended Posts

Why do you call the purfling unique?  It looks fairly standard black-white-black to me.


This is not a brand new Chinese violin

Exactly! It looks a bit like an old Saxon one that didn't originally have purfling, that someone purfeld, and generally tarted up in the vain hope that some gullible individual would think that it could be “valuable”. Perhaps that could be why the OP found the purfling a little peculiar.

PS. Hanover is a notorious Ebay address
