  1. If price is low and sound is ok,(not more 1500 eur) yes, why not. It is usually quite decent student instrument for lower grades.
  2. I have seen Chinese made bows fitted with gold.
  3. Looks like trade violin from MK between IWW and IIWW
  4. So called Hopf violin model - angular=square like. Unforgettable
  5. Yes, prices usually are more friendly here in EU.
  6. Everything is about sound, regular value of violin and final price. You can find many instruments with such repairs on sale regularly with even very high price tags.If repair is not recent, top not recently made, instrument sounds great (and many of them I met was great, some terrible), there are no other problematic repairs and other things to diminish its value and price is at least 1/3 lower of regular price, why not?
  7. I have seen many french scrolls being quite different in quality. I'm sure there is not one only model produced in same factory. But once again: with such photos is hard to decide
  8. Not quite agree,probably you never had Schoenbach production on your table, (those fancy scrolls are unforgettble) but with such quality photos it is impossible to make real decision. Still think it is Mirecourt.
  9. As I understand he is not owning those violins at all...
  10. Are you sure it was offered as 1850? More looks as end of 1800. For me it looks a Mirecourt instrument
  11. Normally not more than 1000 eur in very good state, ready to play. And it is not JTL top production, quite opposite.
  12. I also nearly sure it is from "usual region". I prefer MK, it very much looks like those "french" violins they made pre IIWW.
  13. In Schoenbach they made and sold widely Schachtelns - half assembled boxes, tables sold separately, so it is possible you got violin bought as schachteln, table added from different seller (maybe at same market place), finished by buyer (reseller).
  14. Same "entry level Baroque instrument" even better can be made out of cheap Schoenbach violin or Medio Fino. Just a shit with gut strings (if you put any).
