  1. The graft is real and it clearly hasnt been 'antiqued'. IMO Viennese school, late 18th c.
  2. This one claims to be an H. Emile Blondelet violin ...another imposter I presume? Opinions appreciated.
  3. It is curious that scammers presenting falsely labelled violins, in this case a supposed Collin Mezin, would not be aware that a label was superceded after a certain date. Don't you think? Here's another, with I presume a fake C. Bazin bow https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/284853027362
  4. Apparently this label was used post 1900 Thqnks all for your comments
  5. No, but I've been curious about the violins
  6. This is an interesting eBay listing. Appears to be a genuine 1928 Collin Mezin workshop violin but with the 'Rue du faub, poissonniere, Paris' label... generally considered not to have been used after 1900. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/165528600690
  7. This is another (the second) Collin Mezin violin I have posted in the hope that informed members will be able to appraise it and advise on authenticity. All comments much appreciated. Thankyou.
  8. Jeffrey, would you say it is an authentic J B Collin - Mezin violin?
  9. I am wondering, is this dark area 'antiquing' or age related patina?
  10. The fittings are 100% silver (except for the liner of course)
