Born in Naples in 1835 and apprenticed to Vincenzo Jorio there in 1847, Vincenzo Postiglione established his own workshop in the city in 1855. He worked very much in the Neapolitan tradition, producing copies of Gagliano instruments, but also more refined imitations of Stradivari and Guarneri, all with varnish of appropriate shades. He retired in 1910, and the shop was continued by his sons for some time after his death in 1916.
