  1. Seeing the cracks (1st and 3rd pictures) it looks like a problem with the musician chin pressure. The 2 cracks are around the place where the wood is worn. I think it is why the cracks border the purfling and don't overpass the purfling. Maybe it could be corrected with a local cast only...
  2. Sometimes I wet well first this part and take the top and let the pin in the block.
  3. The violin is the one talked in this forum. I have repaired the back and know I am going with ribs, then I will glue all again and take the top off to repair the cracks. I think I am going to clean the cracks one by one and see the better way for each one. I thin I will do a sound post patch I. The top too.
  4. I never see this kind of cracks where the crack don´t exceed the perimeter of the purfling. How could I do to repair this kind of cracks? I have to break the purfling to let the wood go its way, or maybe it could be done in other way. thank you for your help.
  5. Aireton. But Dilworth said that it is probably David Furber made and refurbished and marked by Aireton.
  6. Maybe to close an open unglued rib? I think it looks close to the ones I had in my Aireton (Now David Furber by the J. Dilworth grace) violin. And I think if the back of OP has a faintly fire mark. In my Aireton it was only visible if you look with direct light and turning the violin both sides.
  7. This old topic show with precision how to make a new button ring. Hope it helps

    Could it be a Bob with channel in the back?
  9. Well, Dmitry Gindin and Florian Leonhard answer me that the violin is not Italian, or that they have too much doubt about this possibillity. But Gindin tell me that the scroll is attractive and could be French or Spanish from 19th century. Could this building method used in Spain? The violin was bought in UK not in Spain. Is there any fussen or germany school in 19th c. in Spain?
  10. I try today to see under UV light and the varnish on top, ribs and back has the same luminiscence. The scroll is diferent. And in the label could read the date 1739.
  11. And what about Austrian origin? Could it be possible. Because you decline any Italian origin, not?
  12. If it is not finally Grancino or something like that I will repair it by my self, then cost would be only the price I played for it. If it is finally important then I send it to someone who know what is he/she doing.
  13. I think that the varnish on top and ribs are retouched because the cracks. The bottom rib seems one piece. @Ratcliffiddles tried a dendro without conclusive results, but maybe he could explain better. About the scroll, what do you think? if not original at last seems interesting. Could be the Delta be as it is now because a break?
  14. He attached a picture and later I show you all.
  15. Roland Terrier answered me about the OP being Aubert: "Je ne pense pas du tout à Aubert ! Le modèle général n’est pas le même, les ouies et la tête non plus, et le détail de fabrication qui a fait nommer cet auteur n’est pas non plus semblable. Voyez ci-dessous l’axe de la contre-éclisse démesurément longue. Par contre je pense que cela peut être français... mais je le laisse anonyme! Cordialement" He let the door open to a French origin. I don't know nothing about Switzerland violin making school. Could you give me names to look for information? Thank you
