"Dendrochronological reports, for the unique information they contain, unquestionably add value and desirability to an instrument"

 

Comprehensively researched, professionally printed colour brochures, dendrochronological reports include all relevant information obtained from the cross-dating analysis, links and relationships to wood from other instruments.

 

Illustrations include essential tree-ring pattern graphical comparisons between the instrument under examination and those closely related. In some cases, "same tree matches" are identified.

 

 

Fine instruments increasingly exchange hands having had the benefit of a dendrochronological test.

 

Many are now accompanied by full dendrochronological written reports, adding peace of mind and often specifically targeted valuable information not otherwise available through traditional , visual expertise.

 

The most important instrument dealers and auction houses worldwide now exploit the results of analyses to support their instrument's attribution.
