  1. Hi Jacob and thanks for the reply! Just by browsing the seller's history I saw this price tag originally: http://m.ebay.de/itm/141960150318?_mwBanner=1 That would then be either be a rip-of at large scale or maybe that would have to do anything with a real Hamberger?
  2. Dear fellow forum readers, Those who heard of the maker Joseph Hamberger, could you let you know your thought about this violin which is sold already but in any case looks interesting. To my (relatively) untrained eyes it is an original piece, I like the varnish on the front. I am not 100% convinced if a label from the first half of the 1800s would look like this, but maybe you have some view on that, too. http://www.ebay.de/itm/Original-Geige-Anno-1836-/121974396712?hash=item1c663d9728%3Ag%3ARvsAAOSwKfVXEJ4t&nma=true&si=ytZfTI0nOMFZV9aUlNRc00j8Am0%253D&orig_cv
  3. Nice found, thanks! I wonder if Brompton's would be interested in it.
  4. I have a French viola made by Emile Leipp from the year 1949 and would like to sell it, to maybe buy a decent violin from the proceeds. What do you think such instrument would sell for and what is the best place to advertise that would likely attract some buyers? (tried and tired of Ebay) Amati and another site have a short article about Leipp with not much information. http://www.amati.com/maker/leipp-e https://ccrma.stanford.edu/marl/CASL/Files/leipp.html
  5. 4000 EUR for a piece of wood..
  6. Is this for real? http://www.lot-tissimo.com/de/i/9927813/p/28/
  7. Mh, with that you are right in general. Yet, you would normally not write anything to the inside of the ribs (which is again wishful thinking). Jacob is saying it is worth a restoration, so I assume the looks of the top is quite pretty, otherwise why would he say so?
  8. Maybe yes, but I am quite positive this is from Strobl. The only thing which makes me think is not is the scroll which is not similar to any scroll I have seen from him based on pictures.
  9. Thanks, Jacob! Do you think that a non-original back will likely result in an approx. 50% lower value of the instrument? In any case, just out of interest I would like to see this violin in one piece.
  10. I bought a violin top on Ebay which, according to the pencil writing inside the ribs is by Michael Strobl from 1925. The back is missing but the original label is labelled to a back (not original) supplied with the violin. Is this in your opinion worth a renovation project? Any opinion is much appreciated. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Geige-von-Michael-Strobl-Berlin-1925-ohne-Boden-/281833934546?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2047675.l2557&nma=true&si=dHHoX8%252BwLDZ%252BtR0m4%252FUmqKotrLU%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc
  11. I am quite sceptic with ebay purchases ever since and I have to admit I made some bad bad decisions but also a few good ones when buying violins on ebay. Recently I came through one violin which is described to be made by Wilhelm Otto. Those original W.O. violins sell in the low thousands and I would bet this is not original. Yet, as always, it is good to have an expert opinion. So, dear enthusiasts, it's your table now. http://www.ebay.de/itm/191695614128
  12. Jeffrey, Would you mind pointing me to the Tarisio link? Many thanks.
  13. Thanks. Just for curiosity, on what do you base that assumption?
  14. Dear fellow Forum readers, What do you think of the following instrument? According to the label, which might even be authentic, but you never know the violin is made by Giuseppe Bargelli, a maker from Firenze. http://www.ebay.de/itm/SCHONE-ALTE-4-4-GEIGE-MIT-ZETTEL-GIUSEPPE-BARGELLI-1947-/281008593846?pt=Streich_und_Zupfinstrumente&hash=item416d6adbb6 How about the varnish? To me it looks that a new layer of varnish was applied but it might only be the reflection of light. Best, Andras
