note: the varnish on this violin is entirely original--the shine is from a very light French polishing before photographing it

Why I have a no return policy ???: Unfortunately I find a return policy is not feasible--often a dealer will buy an item to flip it to a particular customer he has in mind (telling them he has borrowed it "on approval") and if his customer does not buy it, the dealer returns it on some pretext...it is policy to go along with this charade. If you are not sure of what you are buying, it is far better that you buy from a dealer in person where you can feel and touch and even try out the merchandise on approval. The cost of this, of course, is that you must legitimately expect to pay for the dealer's overhead and cost of inventory. You will eventually discover that dealers must ask full prices to stock inventory and have a return policy, whereas individuals who are genuinely selling things do not ask full prices or offer a return policy.

On Apr-30-13 at 23:23:49 PDT, seller added the following information:

Although labels are changed in violins as often as people change shirts, and are generally untrustworthy, as close as I can make it out the name of the maker as given on the label in this violin is - CAROLUT ANTONINI BERGONZI(NI?)- it is not the typical bogus "CARLO BERGONZI" label. It may even be correct but an unlisted maker... THE Carlo Bergonzi had a violin maker son, who in turn had three sons who were also instrument makers, the last of who died around 1830. It is not recorded if these grandsons of Carlo may even have had progeny who were also instrument makers... take this all for what it is worth, or better yet, ignore it...This is a fine antique violin that stands on its own merits.

I have added another picture of the label (for whatever it is worth)--feel free to ignore it. This is a fine violin and stands on its own merits.
