    NOT a violin ID!

    Rue, they're both two-toned. I bet they came from the same place? Looks like someone stripped the tops, but didn't want to deal with doing the intricate bases. Sorry, can't help with the id.
  3. Violadamlore- This is a very difficult to understand explanation of what/where the "delta" is; I doubt that it resolved Derek Law's question. Can you give it another "go"?
  4. Gofriller, I think you've been disappeared!
  5. My admittedly untrained eye tells me someone put a horrendous replacement neck/head on an otherwise decent box, and finished the whole with a terrible black "antiqueing" treatment.
  6. Seems strange that a real Carlo Bergonzi instrument would have ever gotten to the condition shown in the photos.
  7. Antonio; Florence 1846
  8. Yes, I have quite a bit of info on him. What is your interest in him?

    The label is not original to the instrument; it is apparently ca 1934 by Valot.
  10. Possibly recent high sales are a result of the current inflationary trend- folks are investing more in physical items which tend to hold value, rather than leave money in the stock market or banks where it is steadily losing value.

    Slab cut cello

    American made-
  12. I seem to recall some J-G violins that had bellies made of glued-up strips of Spruce; strips maybe less than an inch wide.
