    well, finally @Ratcliffiddles did try dendro "but cannot see conclusive dates for the wood, it is not a ring pattern which is faithfully recognized in my database..." Thank you Peter.

    And this kind of arching point to any age or school? And what about the scroll? it has a hollow zone where the pegholes finish and the scroll start in both sides. Could point to anything? And the pegholes are in pairs

    More pictures if it could help. The ribs are really thick, the cracks outside didn't reflect inside the ribs itself. And the scroll has the fluting stoped making a triangle of wood.

    the center joint is not leveled and has one side higher than the other. the neck-mortice cut-out is around 31mm. Another thing is that the 4 c bouts (upper and bottom, not center bout) has a piece of wood added that could see better in uv light. Maybe it get a clue about the cut down of the top? Also the 4 top corners has different varnish or diferent wood added.

    I don't know but understand your question because mine has a resemblance with early polish violins in the ff. At least in the upper part of the ff. Maybe @mendicus could see my fiddle and compare with him violin More I see my violin more I see that maybe it was bigger and was cut down in the middle... the distance of the ff to the edges are greater than expected...

    surely, thank you. The idea is that the screw is a later addition and that in origin it has a nail or screw in the upper hole that now is covered. What seems by the original hole is that the nail/screw originally was thinner that the actual one.

    Thank you very much for your help, time and interest. About news no news I have the answer of Roland Terrier (I wrote him thinking in the french construction method) and he told me that nothing french he see in this violin but looks really interesting. I am very intriguing... Other roads to investigate?

    I didn't find many coincidences with mine. Except, maybe, Gaspar Borbon. Could you show me or give me pictures or links to examples of what are you thinking about? Thank you.

    This is one of the pictures I found about Mariani school violin that has a similar ffs. I think it is impossible that mine was italian, but those are the most similar ff I found.

    Then the top block is orignal to the violin? lob 360 mm - Top 160 mm - Center 105 mm - Bottom 203 mm - Rib height +-30mm Distance betwen FF - UP 30mm / Center 55mm (notches) Distance Edge/ ff notch 197mm The ribs thickness is very inconsistent, fluctuating from 2.1mm to 3.0 mm ( if you pass the finger in the inside side of the rib you could feel the grain of the flames)

    One question was where is the nail. I began to think that it was hiden in the bottom of the block, where it could be see like a cave of glue/wood... and there it was! the screw And now my question is: if the top block is not original and someone used the top block from another violin and put a patch/nail of wood where an old nail exists or the block is original, because it is in the same position as the hole of the old nail.

    maybe this violin is so puzzle that need as much information as could obtain.

    maybe dendro could help in this case? How old do you think the violin could be?
