I have a Mateo Gofriller viola made in 1727 that is in good condition with some bubbling of the finish. Can you tell me what it is worth. Has great sound. The exact viola is listed at cozio.com as Id # XXXXX I don't know if you'll be able to view the picture there unless you have a subscription. Thank You.

Hello again,I base my valuations on recent auction results. Since I can't examine your viola, that's all I have to go on. If you would like me to recommend qualified appraisers in your local area, so that you may have the viola examined in person, pease give me your location.
