Maybe This Violin's The Next One For You?

This beauty, an antique from the Gagliano family workshop in Naples, Italy, went for $168,000 at a recent Skinner's auction.



Lest you think that was a tad wacky, pre-auction estimates weren't that much less: $120,000-130,000.  (I have a soft spot in my heart for string instruments -- Daughter #2 played a violin in her school orchestra. from middle through high school.)
