Wood Butcher Posted May 26, 2022 Report Share Posted May 26, 2022 1 hour ago, Giovanni Valentini said: Sure, but they did, and therefore, in this case, I would tend to believe a dendro-induced 'Tbay proforma' more than BF certificate. Sorry, I thought that was obvious: Because BF are neither omniscient nor infallible, and their certificates can be annihilated by as little as an uncomfortable dendro result (q.e.d). As this is clearly the case with the 'Maggini', why could it not be with the Landolphi? No other writers of certificates are infallible either. People might do the best they can, but I’m sure mistakes are made. Its entirely possible in the future that many Tarisio, Beare or Biddulph certificates could be called into question, and so the cycle may go on. Regarding the Maggini against the Landolphi, what was wrong with one, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s true for the other, unless you have more information on this particular violin, which we can’t access.
