This was made by a luthier at the legendary Antonio Monzino workshop in Milan. The Antonio Monzino e Figli instrument labels began to appear in 1905 - e Figli meaning and Sons. The Monzino workshop originated in the 18th century in 1767. Address on this label: Via Rastrelli 10. This instrument was not built in the four-year period between 1888–1892, when the Monzino family worked at both addresses: Via Rastrelli and Via Orefici.
