    Fair play to you.

    Given the bowl ornamentation, Mannello would be one of my first guesses, too.

    The F holes naturally make one think of Waldo, who did produce some highly decorated mandolins, too.

    Though I've never seen a Waldo quite that far out.

    Whoever made it (Mannello is likely), congratulations on your purchase. Certainly a museum-grade instrument.
