"A violin with a top by Stradivari and bearing a label dated 1713 was contained in the Wurlitzer Collection. The back, ribs and scroll were made by Alessandro Gagliano. The late Alfred Hill explains the manner of this mating of the work of two masters in a written account which states that, being in possession of a very fine example of the work of Alessandro Gagliano, original excepting the front (which was of mediocre French work), and having in his possession an Amatisé form Stradivari top which was quite well matched to the form of the Gagliano, he himself replaced the poor French top with the one by Stradivari."
