Paper wrapping and 8 seals cerulean - XVIII-XIX C. (Ms. Cozio 94/4-12)

The paper parcel has an inscription consists of two different calligraphy and ink; contained 8 seals cerulean fixed slips of paper on the edges of which are fragments of textile yarns, with glued on one of them the label of 1956 with n. A-2a. The imprint on the seal has a shield Italian, inside truncated by a line bottom with five wedges and in the two camps two unidentified signs (which may very vaguely recall two fish with an open mouth of the emblem published by Hill on the title page of the their monograph of 1902). Above the shield is an oval topped by a cross, on the sides of it has the scrolls and under two branches with stem cross. The confirmation of the authenticity of the seals is very problematic, because the weapon of the decurial  Stradivari family of Cremona, to which some authors linked the luthier, is entirely different.
