  2. old violin for ID

    Very useful (and funny) information. Thanks Martin.
  3. old violin for ID

    Thank you very much. This is a very interesting information. I'll ask the owner where he acquired the violin.
  4. old violin for ID

    Thank you very much for your helpful replies. I never could think it could be of French origin. The scroll was not the usual one I had seen other times and nor the model, very different from the typical Strad one.
  5. old violin for ID

    Hi everybody. I have been given this violin for repair and would like to know if anyone of you could help me in identifying it. Its inside work is not very fine as you can see. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.
  6. Violin for identification

    Hello. I have this violin for repair (it will be a long journey...). It is very small: 34,8 cms. back length. I don't even know if it could be named full size. It has been extensively repaired and I'm not sure if the top has been rebuilt or it was made with six parts in origin. Can anyone help in identifying it? Maybe the usual "Saxon"? Thank you very much in advance.

  8. Violin for id

    Dear Jacob. I didn't know of your illness at all. I sincerely hope you are well and have a good recovery. At least you can always have fun with our naive comments and opinions...
  9. Violin for id

    Hello everybody. I would like you experts to help me in identifying this violin. I've been told it is "MIttenwald" end of nineteen century. Could you please confirm this? Do you agree? Corner block are asymmetrical and scroll fluting goes to the very pegbox. The bottom rib is one piece. (All this seem to confirm the opinions I received). I'm not quite sure the linings let into the block but it seems so. Thank you very much in advance.

  12. Identification of approximately 200 year old violin

    I've seen some Prague violins that seem to be similar to this one specially in the overall shape and F.holes. But let's see what the real experts say...
  13. cello bassbar angle

    Thank you very much for your reply, Thomas. I read somewhere that Stainer and Geissenhof among others placed the bass bar this way. That is why I thought it could give some info about the maker. (I am not stating this cello is made by any of these two guys...) BTW I agree with you in that it seems safer to place it at an angle to avoid cracks along the top. Maybe someone have a different point of view...
  14. Violin Identification

    I've read somewhere that British makers usually inked their purfling but not scribed it. If so the scribed purfling is a clue for a "non British" violin?
