  1. He will send you nothing if any of your Markies has the scroll as follows.
  2. Hmmm.... Retail vs. auction, good condition vs. repair required. Notwithstanding, Philip's Juzek beat all EH Roths in that T2 auction
  3. All those bidders had that damage report. Evidently, they were much more enthusiastic than we were!
  4. There appear more Juzek aficionados and amateur enthusiasts than you and me alone, respectively.... BTW, several EH Roths were also sold in T2 auction today if interested.
  5. Those are likely real:https://tarisio.com/cozio-archive/browse-the-archive/makers/maker/?Maker_ID=1321 Quite masculine and stunningly handsome!
  6. To my eyes, better quality and workmanship than my favorite, an old Juzek MA I play daily. If from EH Roth workshop or made by a pair of hands of a name maker, it would receive tones of compliments; Unfortunately it was not...
  7. I still do not have a clue to differentiate a 18th century from Mittenwald or Fussen? Would anyone kindly educate me?
  8. Likely an eastern European, possibly a Czech. Nice wood and quality job, with a couple of minor blemishes, e.g., small repair of bottom plate connecting to the bottom rib below the endpin, and very tiny bushing of D-peg hole
  9. A nice catch, George; amateur indeed. That is the reason why I am not even qualified to be one.
  10. Thank you, BF; is this an upgraded "usual" with nicely grafted scroll? I understood the scroll, albeit unnecessarily original, appears to be nice to my untrained eyes.
  11. Thank you, Jacob; I may see some differences now.
  12. Why would no one be interested in the following, which I thought is interesting, except the low projection? Well, I am not even an armature, thus once again just hope to hear and learn from the experts at MN. https://www.ebay.com/itm/AN-OLD-INTERESTING-VIOLIN-Labelled-Sympertus-Niggel/353183381089?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20200818143132%26meid%3Decec63ef76d94d51af6d52ee7350dc92%26pid%3D101198%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D11%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D133540991338%26itm%3D353183381089%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DSimplAMLv5PairwiseWebWithDarwoV3BBEV2b&_trksid=p2047675.c101198.m1985
  13. I thought the experts will chime in soon. To my untrained eyes, the fake scroll graft and the purfling extremely close to the edge are the dead giveaway.
  14. Any telltale suggesting the wood is Chinese? It might not be surprising if a low grade student French.
  15. You are probably right. However, I would be interested in knowing whether a fake or a copy is definitely inferior to the original or the authentic; in this case, between the OP and the one sold by Bonhams: https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/17825/lot/64/
  16. It is pity for that minimal price to sell a violin with quality just one grade below a Juzek
  17. I thought the button looks nicer, and somewhat French. Well, I do not know anything.
  18. I am no expert at all. However, it does look Chinese to me, and a well-made one.
  19. Yes, it is quite handsome; thank you for sharing.
  20. While should not be generalized and my knowledge is very limited, I have not seen a Juzek MA has the location pin in the back. Does this one has pin near the ebony button crown in the back?
  21. I have a 1920s Juzek MA (Strad model). Among all I have (>10), I have been playing that Juzek MA way more frequently than any others. Indeed, I am playing it now.
  22. This one appears to be consistent with a 1920s Juzek MA Gagliano model, which is often seen in auctions. Based on my limited experience, while are probably Schoenbachs/Markies, these old Juzek MAs do often have the characteristic mature, round, and pleasant tone, or "old-time" violin sound. I would think such a tonal quality separates them apart from the "typical" Schoenbachs/Markies, believed the main reason for the sought-after status in the States. Since likely made by several shops in the area, those Juzek MAs have variations in appearance as discussed extensively in MN. However, the tone of the OP would define its caliber, even if a genuine Juzek MA.
  23. I have no idea of the OP instrument, but am just curious for, in my untrained eyes, some similarities in appearance of what I have. Probably, the experts at MN would be easily tell them apart and educate me for the differences between them.
  24. I know virtually nothing about violin, especially when come down to recognize Italian instruments (that I do wish to learn). However, while the OP might be interesting, the small and curvy f-hole and wings and the small and shallow button give me some pulses.
