  1. Am I the only one wondering what the other two fiddles are? Also, is there any way you can arrange help for your mom to pack and ship them for her? That's quite a job even for folks that do it regularly. Most online auction houses will refer you to a UPS or similar for packing and shipping services, so maybe you can contact one nearby?
  2. I admit I've never lived in a house with a garage door opened with a remote. But I do know that isn't a quiet operation! My first thought was HOW did they not hear the garage door rattling open at 3:45 in the morning?
  3. Definitely not! It's so nice to see pretty things like this occasionally. And lucky OP!
  4. Not sure about the marks on the top, they kinda look like dings to me. But what's this on the back?
  5. @fragslapThanks for sharing! I think it's awesome how excited everybody at Tarisio were to have TwoSet come by. The DaVinci sounds amazing, I wonder if it will break the record? That vault though...
  6. I'm sure Jacob could explain the "Fussen diaspora" for the class
  7. As Jacob said, it's a Dutzendarbeit. I don't think it's a copy of anything, I've just seen a kabillion of these with any number of fake labels, and Steiner was the first one I thought of. There's a reason the label is the last thing we should look at; the vast majority of the time the label is fake and has zero to do with the instrument.
  8. I was thinking the same thing. Hope everything is OK.
  9. Not sure if it will help or not, but I found this on eBay. It looks (to me, anyway, I'm not an expert) more like the "Derazey" branded/labeled Mirecourt fiddles I've seen a few times. https://www.ebay.com/itm/224904326452?hash=item345d57ad34:g:wR0AAOSwM~diPbbN
  10. Definitely! We'll fix it up and see how it sounds
  11. Yeah, I know. Needs much more work than it's worth. But as my long-suffering teacher will tell you, I am a sucker for this stuff So I wanted to share this little American fiddle with y'all and see what you think of it. The original red varnish with its wonky painted stripes, and the handwritten label are all still there 181 years later. After 20 years collecting fiddles, I do understand this is not commercially viable. It's OK. I just like it The maker is mentioned here. https://www.afvbm.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/THE-HISTORICAL-SIGNIFICANCE-Warren-White.pdf Also my investigator husband who grew up in Baldwinville MA did a bit of searching, screenshots attached. Photos aren't the best, bad lighting in Seattle today. I can post more later if needed.
