  6. Just spotted this violin from Brompton's march sale: Look rather nice: http://www.bromptons.co/auction/catalogue/23rd-march-2014/73-a-good-french-violin-by-honore-derazey-mirecourt-circa-1860.html
  7. How does the auction house define the word Good, Very Good, Fine, Very Fine, Superb, Rare, Interesting, Important, and so on? For instance, what qualifies this violin as a "Superb violin by P Guarneri", rather than a "Very Fine Violin by P Guarneri"? http://www.bromptons.co/auction/catalogue/23rd-march-2014/176A-a-superb-violin-by-pietro-guarneri-venice-1740.html

  10. Jacob...it's so funny..I posted at exactly the same moment as you did... To be accurate, one minute earlier than you well i felt sorry for the winning bidder...
  11. What do people think about this violin? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-Very-Old-Antique-18th-Century-German-Violin-Ready-to-Play-No-Reserve-/331141504486?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4d19925de6 The front is pretty beat up....
  12. Here is a genuine Wornle
  13. Could this be a genuine Georg Wornle? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Old-Violin-GEORG-WORNLE-Mittenwald-1770-violino-antico-alte-geige-violon-ancien-/221383971235?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item338b8351a3 To me, it seems quite right, but seems like the sound holes were altered.
  14. Nope. I wasn't shown with this violin in person...
  15. Can someone please comment on this violin? Thanks!

    Can someone please comment on this violin? Origin, workmanship, varnish, etc. Thanks!
  22. I think the appraisal value here is the replacement value, not the fair market value
  23. Another violin with the "Hill" Certificate! Could this be it? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fine-certified-violin-according-to-the-COA-made-by-Mathias-Albani-ca-1680-/251458893931?pt=UK_Musical_Instruments_Sting_Instruments&hash=item3a8c1e386b
