"The violin we offer was incorrectly sold by the Wurlitzer firm in 1939 as a Milanese violin by Giuseppe Presbler dated 1789. Today we can easily attribute it to Sgarabotto by the trademark antiquing style and recognizable details and workmanship. Its warm and full sound is complex and strong."

"A very interesting reproduction by Sgarabotto after the maker Giuseppe Pressbler whose facsimile label the violin bears. "
