  1. Mirecourt?

    Thanks, I'll do photos in 5day! Interesting info!
  2. Mirecourt?

    I'll do extra photos - but really wanted to know about inside work.
  3. Mirecourt?

    Dear experts, is it really Mirecourt average trade level inner work? Could you describe why or why not? Most of my time I'm dealing with german instruments, so trying to learn a bit more. Top is cracked, somebody did poor repair, so now crack should be cleaned and than repaired, but otherwise good,clean work. Thanks.
  4. Ideas about my new friend please?

    Carmignola is not a baroque violinist, he just play baroque violin. It is very bad and uneducated way of doing that. He was not bad as modern player, do not understand why he need all that.
  5. 20th century schonbach ?

    I would like to see those taxidermist's violins, are they with a lion heads?
  6. Violin ID - any ideas?

    No, but if you look carefully photo of inside, you can see top block and traces of glue and smth like a repair.
  7. Violin ID - any ideas?

    There is no graft, so probably neck replacement.
  8. Violin ID - any ideas?

    Thanks, I got photos of cornerblocks
  9. Violin ID - any ideas?

    Yes, inked purfling.
  10. Violin ID - any ideas?

    Any suggestions about time and place of origin of that violin? Looks BOB with later added corner blocks, pegbox not blackened, scroll fluting goes up to very end, size 35.5. Saxon?
  11. Identification of approximately 200 year old violin

    I had at least 2 or 3 violins nearly identical to OP violin (but in a pretty much better health). All were identified by several experts as typical Saxons , is something now I'm not able to see or know? Learning all the time. NB: all were quite good players for low budget
  12. Mutes/Sourdines

    Is it possible to identify those 2 mutes? Bigger one probably should be viola mute.
  13. Whose face is this?

    It can be also Schoenbach, pre WW1, if it is not Mittenwald work. Very similar violin once I have seen signed inside on table as made by Johann Schack
  14. hole in the back of pegbox

    Thanks, is it found by French school also? and not so much centred, but more behind A peg.
  15. hole in the back of pegbox

    I remember there was a "collateral" discussion about hole in a back of a pegbox. Does anybody have info or can share his thoughts about that strange thing? Any info very warmly welcomed.
