  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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???
  4. 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?
  5. 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."
  6. Thanks for your quick reply!! It was in the case with a violin branded up by the neck block Otto Windisch.
  7. Any information will be appreciated- country of origin, wood species, time frame, etc.
  8. 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.
  9. Concerning the LOB, it is 363 mm.
  10. Concerning the LOB, it is 363 mm.
  11. Thank you, Martin! Would you suggest early to mid 19th century......or earlier????
  12. Thank you for your observations! I will be back the shop in the morning and will post LOB.
  13. I am away from the shop today so can't take photos of lining endings at the blocks. I found the linings to be pointed but scarcely inlet into the blocks -- if so, only "hinted at. I can take photos to post tomorrow. Thanks for your input.
  14. Thanks as always, Jacob!
