I had put this one on my mad Viola money Watch List list.

It might even be what the label says. Crispilli is a Violist as well as a luthier according to Google

I would guess not, just because the year "1979" is written in such a Germanic fashion.  I'm not even looking at the viola.  But that also doesn't look local to anywhere in Italy to me...especially not Venice.  My husband's on a major Venetian kick right now, so Venetian stuff is just about all I'm looking at these days too.  

 

ETA: Dwight!  You should buy the viola.  Do not hate the viola.  It's never done anything to you.

I guess Crispilli instruments have gone for less before.  Huh.  I don't think it's particularly pretty, at all, but who cares. Odds are good for higher resale value sometime down the line, right?

$500.00 would probably only buy you a fairly basic student 16" viola.

What can you possibly lose?  You said it's in budget, you're obviously intrigued.  Buy the thing and be happy.

Yes...but there is at least as much fun to be had from discussing it and savouring it as there is from buying it.
