I think the work period is early 20th century thru mid 20th. I would suggest you ask Sergio Scaramelli in Italy. He might know. Because they mainly made just D.basses, they were never listed in any of the books on Violin makers in any detail. The Jalovec book of makers just has Giuseppe as Naples 20th century. His label mentions in Italian Contrabasses and repairs.
