We decided to make this web page to inform people regarding several cases of fake Villa instruments that appear from time to time on the internet.
We always get  upset when we discover one. However, as our clients say, if someone in the world makes fake Villa violins, it means  they are actually greatly appreciated and highly valued in the world.

Please, if you come across a violin with our label inside, DO NOT hesitate to contact us to verify the authenticity!

Every violin we sell has its own certificate of authenticity signed by us. In the certificate there are always a set of photos also signed by us. If you don't have the original certificate, we are still able to check the authenticity because we keep records of every violin in our archives.

Here are some examples of recently discovered fake Villa violins.
