I just came across this ocarina a few minutes ago:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ocarina

Though I cant be certain, it looks more like a Mezzetti ocarina than the stated Vienna Austria (which would more than likely make it a Fiehn)
It appears to have been painted over so identifying it as either would be difficult.

There are three points that make me believe that it is Mezzetti however:
-The two stage tuning slide, as such was invented by mezzetti (I believe, dont quote me on that)
-The shape is similar to some models Ercole or Alberto made
-If you look closely at the mouthpiece, there seems to be two depressions, similar in shape to the seals commonly used my the constructor in that location.

Have a look and share your thoughts :D

Definitely not Mezzetti. Most likely Fiehn...

Even i doubt that is a fiehn... I don't see any stamp of him and they are traditionally very big in in the same spots.
It's probably another austrian maker.
