  1. I have an old bow that I've had for more than 30 years that has this same type of metal end which is attached. I've kept it as a "curiosity."
  2. The two bows with the brand stamp that looks a bit like an X with small letters come from the C A Hoyer shop in Markneukirchen...Saxony Germany ca. 1920.
  3. Thanks to everyone for your comments! I'm a continual "learner" and you have been helpful. Blank Face, regards your question about pins in slide and adjuster button, I will check later today and post info and photos.
  4. As the title implies, I am wondering if this “Leon Pique” violin bow could be by the hand of Otto Hoyer. Here are photos…other can be provided if desired.
  5. I've often had same situation with school bows. My solution is a small dot of solder to secure the end - then smooth with a fine file.
  6. When I get back to the shop I will go into my library of reference books to see if he is listed in any of my sources. If anyone happens have anything on this Kriner, I would greatly appreciate it you would share the info!
  7. Thank you (each of you) for the "illumination" on the inscription! I've never seen anything remotely like this! I wonder what this may reveal about Mr. Kriner???
  8. I opened up 3/4 violin today — a Mittenwald piece judging by pointed lining inserted into corner blocks, one piece lower rib, fluting on scroll to “the bitter end,” etc. it has an inscription inside — German I assume. Can someone translate it to English for me?
  9. We have same conditions & issues here in Missouri. Keeping my vaporizer s going 24/7 to maintain 40%. The good news is "this too shall pass."
  10. Thanks for your quick reply!! It was in the case with a violin branded up by the neck block Otto Windisch.
  11. Any information will be appreciated- country of origin, wood species, time frame, etc.
  12. You can see the ending of C bout lining and overview of the corners. here is the photo of the top Blank Face mentioned in his earlier post.
  13. Concerning the LOB, it is 363 mm.
