    Minty Vinaccia on eBay

    Crazy asking price, but it sure is pretty...

    That seller, leuterius, has quite a pile of bowlbacks and he is persistent on listing them over and over for pretty much the same price, tho occasionally he lowers it a bit once in a while. That is a beauty tho.

    He has a violin by Carlo Columbo Bruno from Torino (I have a Roman-style mandolin by that maker) that he has listed for $13,000.

    The action looks impossibly low. It certainly is a stunning piece.

    Lovely instrument, but not necessarily by Vinaccia. The fabric linings (or perhaps textured paper?) do not look like original Vinaccia's plus the label has been re-glued by the look of it, possibly during the restoration, but who knows?

    You could be right, Victor. OTOH, with later Vinaccia like this one, I have seen all sorts of oddities. For instance, I have even seen some Roman style Vinaccias.

    Yes, I remember that one. Also not 100% sure of it's originality though. This one could well be by Vinaccia, but a re-glued label will always cast the shadow of doubt, unfortunately.

    Here is another oddity from Russia, unlabelled. Has Vinaccian style tail buttons. But it will be a very bold speculation to suggest it is a Vinaccia, even though they made the ones with the oddly shaped soundholes at some stage. Likely to be either German or from Catania, I think.

    I just realised I had missed putting this late 1800’s copy of an early 1800’s Vinaccia mandoloncello in this thread for posterity.
    Apparently it went for €3000 at auction recently. The information I got was unclear as to whether this was by Vinaccia too or not.
