Discovered at a valuation day in Brisbane, the violin pictured went on to sell for a world auction record price of £210,000. Its owner wrote:

"It is not easy to part with a violin that has been a part of one’s life for almost 50 years. However, the time had come for me to say farewell to it and by good fortune Peter Horner was offering complimentary appraisals in Brisbane. Peter’s manner and handling of my violin reassured me  that it would be in very good hands at Brompton's.
I am very grateful for the fine work that went into sprucing up and restoring my Rocca, the article by John Dillworth, the certification by Peter Biddulph, and in the way it was honoured by Corina Belcea’s gifted playing. Finally, the outcome of the auction was beyond my expectations. My sincere thanks to all at Brompton’s." Susan V, Brisbane, Australia
