    Default Tripoldi Mandolin

    I have a Tipoldi mandolin from around 1890. I want to know if anyone can tell me anything about itís history. I can send photos.

    Can you post some photos, please, which might help folks respond to your query.

    There were a pair of brothers: I Fratelli Tipaldi that made mandolins in NYC during the era you are speaking of.

    Not sure if your Tripoldi is a typo, or a blurred label or another name altogether.

    Photos would help.

    Tipaldi were indeed in NYC. Some labels say they made mandolins but many say on the labels that they were importers of fine Italian mandolins.
