Italian made Zveltian (or some such spelling). It appears on the UFiP page of brands produced by the UFiP factory.



Yours is top row 4 over to the right.

The Italians did this thing with the signatures and the word Constantinople under the bell and as part of the trademark which makes them seem Turkish made. They tend to be made in metric sizes so your 13.7" is a 350mm diameter cymbal.

I don't keep close track of these Italian cymbals but from what I've seen I would expect it to sell in the range $20-$30. However, based on the thousands of sales I have recorded I know that prices are highly variable. What you get is what you get on the day.

Only 20-30? I would have expected more in the 75-100 range. It's a really cool cymbal, in fantastic condition. Best condition I've ever seen for that particular flavor. Although a big challenge would be to find its mate for a proper hi hat pair. Er, make that next to impossible.

I actually might have it, not sure if its the actual mate, but its a similar cymbal. Traded it to a friend of mine and I know he still has it.
