Builders Alphabetical List

   These are photos that I have collected over the years on the internet. The information about each is often very limited. I have had to rely on the spelling of others taken from Italian labels, often torn, dirty, or partly missing. So, it is possible that some of the instruments are in fact by the same maker, even though I may have attributed it to a name spelt a little differently. Any thoughts or extra information would be very useful.

Below you will find some of the many Neapolitan mandolins, (though maybe not all Italian) some very decorative, which sadly are not attributed to any maker, either by omission of the vendor, or by virtue of no discernable label....

      probably by Martello      
  Now identified as Carlo Crispi

(thanks to Hans Eriksson)

          possibly a Puglisi
