Hi people at maestronet, it seems to be the biggest site talking about violins and its luthiers on the net.
A friend of mine has bought recently a 200 year (approx) violin, it has a carved signature on the back side "AL", the L is superposed to A as a logo. Im looking for some information about the violin maker... I have search the list on this site but i have no clues. Any help would be useful... thanks in advance

For what it's worth (not very much, I must caution you): leafing through Henley, I spotted Andreas Carl Leeb as a possibility. He worked in Vienna and Pressburg from 1784 until at least 1813, and his initials were sometimes branded on the back. However, the listing doesn't say whether the branding was stylized the way you describe. Nor do you give enough information about the violin to see if it matches the listed characteristics of his work.

Your friend's best bet is to take it to an expert, which I most assuredly am not.
