  1. I don't like them:). I wonder if they weren't originally from some gamba or lute
  2. I forgot to mention that purfling is painted, that is why I thought it is more likely Salzkammergut than Reichel. Did Reichel made violins without purfling? If it is Reichel, which one? I have found on internet that father and son had same name.
  3. Is this late 18th c. Salzkammergut violin or could it be Reichel? or something else? Thanks
  4. year and back/top on direct sunlight
  5. I haven't noticed it neither before

Thanks
