  1. Also I find it funny how yours has Mittenwald crossed out. It seemed like William Lewis labeled alot of their instruments "Mittenwald" despite them clearly not being from there. For example, this viola. It goes without saying that these Fickers were made by Roth, and thus it is improbable that they were made in Mittenwald.
  2. I have a Gustav August Ficker/Georg Albert Fischer by Bennett Brothers as well. I believe these were bought by Bennet Brothers from William Lewis and rebranded considering the William Lewis catalogue numbers, G.A.F. brands, and their Chicago association.
  3. Would Salustri be considered amongst those in the Italian violin rennaisance?

    Upon further inspection, I think the linings could be let into the block. What looked to me like the lining stopping short, looks to me now like just a reductive repair.

    Hi BF, as always, thank you for your comment. The violin is fully blocked and lined with the linings not inserted into the blocks. There are two holes in the neck block, and the bass bar looks relatively new. The scroll fluting goes all the way to the end, and the pegbox is carved almost until the end of throat as well. I tried to capture the length of the pegbox in one of the photos, where it looks like it ends only a mm from the fluting. The bottom rib is one piece.
  8. I think Mittenwald as well.
  9. I think it's intentional to keep the supply down while demand is still relatively low.
  10. I take it you're not receiving many Christmas cards this year.
