    Would outside mould be French influence?

    Built on-the-back or interior/exterior mold?

    Were these instruments made by single makers or in workshops? Are they typically unlabeled?

    There is no maker's label inside the instrument, only a Dutch repair label from 1958. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    HI violadamore, the wording on "my" one (it's back with the owner) is simply Adam Mackie / Johannesburg 1928

    Thanks for the responses! Jacob S, I was also thinking "somewhere near Markneukirchen". Edi, I don't see any meaningful resemblance between the violin in my post and the one on the violinsa site.

    This violin has me confused. Before I looked at the label I thought it was something else. Opinions?
  13. Thanks for the responses and the link. It's weird, some people can access the site, some can't. Till about 3 months ago I had no problem.
  14. Please see if you can access www.warchal.com - I've never had a problem before, but recently I've had no luck. Thanks in advance.
