chinese ? hellier? ole bull strad copy? dogs and birds!

April 13, 2023, 6:44 PM · HI i recently traded a storioni copy ,probably german that had been varnished over with a darker red color ,for a inlaid violin which appears to be copy of either a hellier strad or an ole bull strad ,the type dz strad makes ,but the vines on the ribs have birds and dogs in them . i have seen plenty of these inlaid violins online but not a single one with birds and dogs in the vines on the ribs ,does anyone have any info on this? oh btw the label reads
Antonius Stradiuarius Cremonenfis Faciebat Anno 1687.

ps posting links and images to this site seem a bit complicated to me . is it like easy or not ?
plus how do you start a discussion as opposed to a blog ?
