    Re: Bowlbacks of Note

    This is not for sale on ebay, but i think it is of note: it is a 1891 mandolin made by the Brazilian maker Joao dos Santos Couceiro.

    Re: Mandolins in visual art

    This is the original Georges Braque painting 'Woman with mandolin'. I made the foto in the Tyssen fine arts gallery in Madrid.

    Welcome to the Cafe!

    What kind of music do you wanna play? Traditional Italian, classical, bluegrass? Can you read standard notation or just tabs? There is plenty of information on this site, but...

    Re: Women with Mandolins

    Thanks, Jeff! This is my second attempt for commissioning a woman with mandolin painting. While the first was not very successful, i'm pretty happy with this one.

    Re: Early Italian (?) Flatback

    Hi Vic,

    No, the tailpiece on my Puglisi is branded with the mark Marcelli plus the design is different from those listed in the CiD catalogue. But it sure comes from Germany as well.

    Re: Women with Mandolins

    It is actually an old song by Katzenjammer. More than an year old for sure, but it is a great song and it's always good to hear it again.

    Re: Early Italian (?) Flatback

    Now this one looks much more Italian than the flatback. I would say a pretty typical Neapolitan bowlback. The scratch plate pattern, the bridge and the tailpiece look exactly the same like the ones...

    Re: Early Italian (?) Flatback

    Looks a bit different but still very similar to the one we are discussing. Jim is right. Gagliano is the best guess so far.

    The tailpiece looks just like the one on my Puglisi. I bet it stays Made...

    Re: Early Italian (?) Flatback

    Hi Jim,

    Yes, most probably a cross-cultural anomaly it is. May be someone saved the hardware of a dead Italian bowlback and put it on a German (or of other origin) instrument later. We will never...
