Footnotes

  • Offered with the Tree-Ring Analysis Report No., B29 of John Topham dated 9 February 2013 noting the two piece table wood dates from 1738 and 1737 also stating; "This result has some similarities to another Violin attributed to Leandro Bisiach, label dated 1926 measured in a previous analysis. It too very significantly cross-dated with sequences taken from instruments of Cremonese and Venetian origin and may be an example of this maker having access to old wood that was often used by other classical makers of the early to middle 18th century for the fronts of their instruments."
