  1. funny, in slovak language it is 'Hore v hore, hora horí'
  2. this one I am not sure how old it is. Do you think it is 18th c.?
  3. pegs found in box of various accessories bought in England
  4. ex-Bruno Giuranna looks to me it have two (or four if eyes are counting) pieces scroll. Is it true?
  5. Thanks, very interesting even if not 18th c.:)
  6. english pegs posted by fiddlecollector https://maestronet.com/forum/index.php?/topic/333891-baroque-boxwood-color/&do=findComment&comment=710774
  7. I would like to collect in this thread photos of baroque (or pre-1800) pegs of any stringed instrument, where possible including info like where,when and by whom it was made ideally including matching end-button. here are what I have found using google: probably french 1750-1800 , http://darntonviolins.com/blog/page/5/ Bros. Amati viola in the Ashmolian. These may not be the original pegs but they are very old(posted by Meyer in some old thread) Scroll and original pegs, P.G. Mantegazza viola, 1793 no info on these:
  8. there are thousands of 362mm 4/4 violins.Of course they fit violin cases. I think even some long pattern Stradivari are that long.
  9. I don't know, but you are probably right.I meant LOB of Chardon is similar to LOB of 1/4 violin(but that may be wrong too)
  10. It is original small sized violin, I think it is about size of 1/4
  11. Tops are from Ciresa, Val di Fiemme, he have measured densities and I don't know where he get maple, maybe also from Ciresa?
  12. I like these old threads. When this started (7th september 2000) these were my first days in school
