  1. Well... they met the reserve with $2,100 so somebody must think it's worth fixing. I'm tempted to ask for a condition report. I mean yeah that looks quite broken but maybe it's a scratch or... not all the way through, or... OK it's broken. Sad face. What I want to know is why would somebody treat their bow so badly as to cause that damage.
  2. I've often thought about that... it makes me wonder if all non-French bows are the ones stamped upside down! Maybe we're looking at them and photographing them wrong? Considering the values of fine French bows, I tend to think they're the ones doing it right!
  3. I imagine things at T2 are there for a reason, which ones we don't know... Not that they aren't quality instruments or not worth purchasing, but they aren't listed in the "fine" auctions for one reason or another. It could just be a question of timing, maybe somebody wants to sell something sooner rather than wait for the fine auctions. Or maybe somebody has stock that has sat at the shop for 15 years that they want to unload. Basically it's up to the buyer to evaluate the quality, what provenance is provided, and make their own decision as to what they are willing to pay.
  4. I was going to ask about the kitty! Willy was a beautiful boy I love Meesers, we had a pair of Bluepoint sisters in the 70's, Tishy and Chikey. They had a few litters of babies, there's a photo somewhere of me at age 3 with a lapful of little puffballs. My mom tried briefly to be a breeder but that didn't go anywhere, and the two queens retired in the splendor of our shack in the woods, where they lived to be 15 and 16. They divided their time equally between a chair in front of the fuel-oil heater, and my dad's lap.
  5. Dude, you really need to chill and take a step back. Insulting the experts on this forum will not endear you to anybody. Maybe check out Jacob's credentials and think about apologizing. It's just a goddam bow FFS.
  6. George for the win! And here I thought nobody got my Lionel Ritchie comment about a certain cello! I imagine the fiddle has some sparkly face powder all over the top and some extra added eyeliner to the f holes. Perhaps a little "eyeshadow" on the scroll Gotta look mysterious!
  7. I'm starting to feel seen!
  8. Ah I see... so we're back to "property of a batty old hoarder"!
  9. Maybe they mean this? From Encyclopedia Britannica Lady, in the British Isles, a general title for any peeress below the rank of duchess and also for the wife of a baronet or of a knight. Before the Hanoverian succession, when the use of “princess” became settled practice, royal daughters were styled Lady Forename or the Lady Forename. “Lady” is ordinarily used as a less formal alternative to the full title of a countess, viscountess, or baroness; where the name is territorial, the “of ” is dropped—thus the Vicountess of A. but Lady A. The daughters of dukes, marquesses, and earls also have, by courtesy, the title of lady prefixed to their forename and surname—e.g., Lady Jane Grey.
  10. WOW! That's something, all right... thanks for the video!
  11. Clearly doing a brisk business... 46 sets sold! Amazing how a person selling fake labels is so concerned with somebody stealing them that they list the photo with an "anti copy marking". I have no words...
  12. WOW that is amazing! I bet in the few seconds it took to open it you almost had a heart attack! Excellent find
