Italian violin made, in our opinion, in Naples circa 1850 by a member of the Jorio school
We believe this violin was made by a luthier associated with the workshop of Vincenzo Jorio, an influential maker who worked in Naples between 1830 and 1850. Among Jorio's apprentices was the illustrious Vincenzo Postiglione (1835-1916). Although additional information is not known about this violin, it displays the high level of craftsmanship represented by makers from the mid 19th century Neapolitan school.
