  1. BassClef, Thank you for your well-founded and informative contributions!

    Than it would have been probably better to bid on the Buddy Holly stage jacket in the same auction. It's at least certified by his sister

    I fully agree with your opinion on the op instrument but I think there are a still a lot of Knorr instruments here on our side of the pond. In the two Bongartz auctions of the Dieter Walter collection three years ago, around 15 - 20 instruments were auctioned and most of them went to a german buyer (which does not mean that they did not end up elsewhere). Also some dealer have one in stock here. Unfortunately there are many fakes and even more fools to fall for them. If you find a Strad or Guarneri model larger than 357 as well those silly outside brand stamps, please watch the warning lights. In my opinion some instruments in the Tarisio archive are at least debatable, especially the fiddle from the last Tarisio NY sale.
  4. Thank you very much for your kind answer.
  5. The stamp does not represent a star, but indeed two triangles placed one on top of the other. It's the trademark of the Ludwig Heberlein company, founded in Markneukirchen in 1852. https://sachsen.digital/werkansicht/303739/1/0?tx_dlf[pagegrid]=0&cHash=824baab0f57b8022d1fb3ff3e60de821
  6. You could just ask the French expert, he certainly knows his way round. The handling of the post Brexit rules seem to differ in the individual EU countries. In my experience sending from the EU to GB is easy and smooth with the appropriate forms. I heard from France that it also works well from GB to France. On the other hand our snored German customs authorities seem to be staging a fucking Prussian comedy from the 19. century.
  7. Be glad this thread isn't yet flooded with third-rate gentleman´s jokes . What a beautiful instrument, it is always good to see such perfect things!
  8. Karl Robert Reichel is in the address book of Markneukirchen as bow maker in the years 1897, 1904 and 1924 resident in the Schützenstrasse registered. Unfortunately no further information from my side.
  9. You are right, sorry: Heinrich
  10. I read: Repariert Von Friedrich Müll(er?) München Repaired by Friedrich Müller Munich
  11. Yes, but since she is German she actually said Paläontologie. Had exactly the same thought!
  12. Oui, sans doute monsieur.
  13. No, but as you can see in the Roth thread it isn't necassary to look as a Strad for a Strad model
  14. Perhaps it means guarneriusish
