After finding this 18th Century mandolin, my research suggested it was made by one of the Vinaccia family members because it has similar design traits. But the interior label has another name. At least I presume it's a name. Nothing came up when I Googled it. All I could learn from the the label was that Hoc Opus means "the hard work of" and the Roman Numeral date translates to 1793. Materials used are Spruce, Mother of Pearl, Ebony & Ivory. Original bridge. It is remarkably intact having only two small ivory buttons missing on the headstock and one round piece of MOP. The mandolin measures 23" long, top to bottom. The neck measures 5" from the body to the nut.
Please ask any questions you might have if I am omitting other important details.
To insure there will be a happy winner, this mandolin is offered with **
