  1. "retabli" is not the same as restored? Could be the word for the edge doubling of the inside of the top?
  2. Point this to English origin? But it has the ribs in a channel in the back... Maybe french or Dutch?
  3. LAPREVOTTE PARIS looks like an experimental violin
  4. He said, by pictures, that is a David Furber refurbished by Aireton and that he has seen this done by Aireton more times. The condition is perfect. It has only a little crack in the upper bass side of the top. All original except, I think the screw of the neck. I think Aireton has put a little piece of wood in the neck to rise the neck. Now is sounding really well and is using by a friend of mine. He is playing professional baroque music.
  5. Then, is better if it is an Aireton instead a D. Furber? Who could be the expert to ask if it is or not a Furber or Aireton?
  6. The violin is now with a very good friend and I need to know the price of this violin for an insurance. Here in Madrid there is no person that could give an idea of the price. Could someone help me?
  7. Thank you very much! I was looking for info because Dillworth told me that my Aireton violin is a David Furber refurnished by Aireton.
  8. Sorry, but if someone has the book The British Violin: 400 Years of Violin Making in the British Isles, Could show me the pages 186/187 that I think has information and pictures of David Further violin. Thank you very much for your help
  9. This feature in the pegbox appear in all the instruments of this time and pictorial school (XVI c.)... maybe a characteristic of Brescia instruments?. But I find rarely in the examples of original surviving instruments. http://collections.nmmusd.org/Violins/BrescianSchool/3363/BrescianViolin3363.html
  10. This painter has a lot of musicians pictures and the violins looks very similar.
  11. In this one we could see the grain of the top wood... maybe @Ratcliffiddles could make a dendro? Gerrit van Honthorst (1592-1656)
  12. Maybe this one is earlier, from c. 1529. The violin seems to has 3 strings. Gaudenzio Ferrari: The Madonna of the Orange Trees
  13. The pictures was sold with this information. ANTOINE-PAUL VINCENT (FRENCH, FL. C. 1790 - 1810) - A faint inscription on the backing paper reads 'L[...] célèbre violiniste émule de Kreuzer né à Rennes [] en Bretagne premier prix [...] peint par Vincent qui a/ remporté le 1ier prix / par cet ouvrage à Paris [?] This is a RODE picture
  14. There is an old post talking about the same: https://maestronet.com/forum/index.php?/topic/324337-nuther-linings-question/&do=findComment&comment=513609 In this @Bruce Carlson give a list: "Some Italian makers who used continuous linings but by no means is an exhaustive list, mostly 20th century: Genoa school of Cesare Candi already mentioned by Jeff Holmes. Marino Capicchioni - Rimini - in his early instruments - later he switched to non-continuous Nicola Utili - Castel Bolognese Custode Marcucci - Lugo - Santa Agata sul Santerno Costantino Celani - Ascoli Piceno Rodolfo Fredi - Rome Giorgio Corsini - Rome Umberto Muschietti - Udine - shaped his corner blocks to look like continuous linings"
