Does this look Italian?

it would as far as I'm concerned

Don't gorget the early Piedmontese makers who used grooves, Catenar, Sorsana, early Cappas...I think Celoniato, too, but I'd have to check that.

Don't think this violin has much to do with them, though, and I'm not sure I see ribs in a groove, in this photo either.

I can't see any evidence for it either ... what are you seeing?


In the final picture of the first set, I saw what looked like a shallow groove just above the upper treble corner - looking at the new pictures, I think it may have been a shadow under the ding on the edge.
