The scrolls are well executed, both in point of finish and style; the sound-hole also is cut with precision.
How characteristic the scroll and the sound-hole of each several maker!
The sound-hole partakes more of the character of Guarneri; the scroll is larger, and the turns bolder than in the Stradivari form.
How graceful is the turn of the sound-hole at both the upper and lower sections!
His sound-hole cannot be considered an effective one, and is not in keeping with the work.
The points of failure in these imitations may be cited as the scroll and sound-hole.
The model is often that of Girolamo Amati, but slightly more arched; the sound-hole is more rounded and less striking.
Particularly is this the case in the form of the sound-hole and scroll.
The outline is perfect; the sound-hole is executed in a masterly manner; the model, purfling, and scroll of equal merit.
The sound-hole is long and pointed, and admirably set in the instrument.
