Is this a real Oddone violin or copy?

It most certainly IS the same violin. The back figure is like human fingerprints and the bare(?) spot on back looks identical. I have no idea if Tarisio attribution is correct or not but I wonder why OP didn't get back with answer to Jacobs question about the stamp.

I don't think we will hear any more from Mr.Tung.

If you want more details you could always ask the auction house https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/ewbanks/catalogue-id-srew10316/lot-9ec77dc5-da44-498a-92bb-ade5011dc095

Same repair on the lower treble side of the top.  It shows up much clearer in the auction photos than the Tarisio photo.

Interesting, my friends fiance is quite high up at Ewbanks.

Could also just speak to Andreas Woywood and ask him.

I am actually asking Ewbank for more photos and waiting for reply.

I'm looking for a violin for my daughter, she actually tried another Oddone before but the owner doesn't want to sell his violin. I bought her another violin but it's not very good and I don't wanna make one more mistake again.

Then go to a reputable dealer in your part of the world and pay for an example with proper guarantees. Make sure it has an independent certificate from a respected source, make sure it has a full condition report, and make sure that your daughter and her teacher/s really like the sound.

Don't try to cut corners if you don't know what you are doing.

Sorry to be blunt but this is good advice which will save you money and pain in the long run.

Thanks for your suggestion. She use an Oddone for a competition before which is borrowed from her teacher. She felt very good. So I think that could be the right choice for her. 

So if you are looking for an Oddone you need to be sure it's genuine.

Secondly you need to be sure that it sounds good.

Many of these early 20th century makers are wildly inconsistent - some sound great, some sound like nails on a blackboard.

Go to a dealership that offers a full service, and make sure her teacher is on board. Try the violin extensively before you buy.
