Varnished by Dossena Carlo - 20 Years Ago

The Italian frame is has a label Varnished By Dossena Carlo

Who is Dossena Carlo?

Does anyone have a frame painted by this person?

Yes, and they're all over eBay right now too... The Titans (Swiss brand made in Italy, not Teledyne Titan) all seem to have that decal on 'em. It looks like decent production paint, but often a little unusual. For example, my Titan has a "smoked" finish, which was probably real soot from an acetylene torch applied over the cream color base paint & then clear coated. Looks cool. Frame was $175 shipped from the eBay seller. Can't even get a decent paint job around Los Angeles for that, let alone a NOS frame.

Carlo Dossena also does restoration work. He is not of the quality level of the top American painters but then his prices don't even approach the cost paid here. He is located in Northern Italy.
