Italian violin on eBay

Recommended Posts

We were discussing it here:

edited to add  - Martin pointed out the differences in inking and chamfer on the scroll. 

I don't think Guerra was branding things in the '20s, the button doesn't have the nicks you'd see if it was what it claims to be, and the way that the purfling sits in the corners (closer to the C bout) makes me think that it's more likely a reworked French trade fiddle.

Hopefully I'm wrong and the buyer is enjoying a great score.
