Certificates & Documents

  • Dendrochronology report: John C. Topham, Surrey (2003) "I am happy to say that the sequences from the front of the Violin cross match very significantly other dated instrument sequences and chronologies at the dates shown in the report." The report states that the two pieces of the table probably came from different trees of a similar early period. "..What is rather pleasing is the bass side very closely resembles the bass side of another Antonio Stradivari Violin dated 1699..."
