Report Can anybody tell me... Why? in The Auction Scroll Posted February 4 19 hours ago, deans said: When a good violin comes up in auctions around here, people come out of the woodwork. However I suspect that it was a distance bidder, at least from what I see. It at least looks like a serviceable instrument I know it's almost impossible to tell but I was actually wondering about the bow... looks like old tinsel wrap maybe? But not $977 wondering!
