    ID please

    As much as I can see, they are some kind of dirt... But does anyone see anything that allows to guess the time of making?
  2. Yes, probably. Thats why I said that this is the asking price in shops. What would they really sell for - I have no idea; I am not a dealer, I am not familiar with pricing/discount. But even if this is not of course valid for any random MedioFino, then some may well sell for that - as a solid beginners instruments, if they happen to have a reasonable sound.
  3. Even starting from the very Medio Fino, and some them, too, fetch easily 1000...X000; at least as asking price – check the webshops around the globe...
  4. Floor is always 0. I got an undamaged Schönbach "box" (integral bar) as a free gift when I bought a 10 euro old (but interesting) case. Student violin for a cost of a setup. What pretty much has been sayed here before...

    Well, Vogtland and BOB, of course. 20? Late 19? Early 19?

    ID-s are doing well, so another one here! Sorry folks, photos are not getting any better, but... your vision is sharper than my skills, anyway. I could try to take some of them anew, let me know. The neck perhaps is a later replacement (?)

    Violin ID please

    A cheap Chinese endoscope will do the trick.

    Violin ID please

    And one must admit that Thibout was so inconsistent with his Stradivari that it rather looks a Guarneri...

    Violin ID please

    This is the famous No 8 by Jacques-Pierre THIBOUT. Dilworth has seen the very same: Stradivari models in the Lupot style, although inconsistent. Experimented constantly with model and varnish, but the best are of a very high order and often given false Lupot labels. First class materials. Nouveau procédé approuvé par l’Institut / Thibout, Luthier, rue Rameau / No. 8, à Paris, 1835 T.J.P.

    Instrument quality matters!

    A good strategy for a contestant, but the orchestra? Perhaps all auditioners should take it with the same instrument - the one they could get later to play from orchestra's (or whatever) fund/bank.

    Is this a good french violin?

    And it wouldn't help much anyway with most Markies. The one I posted has a label of a man who has never made one.

    Is this a good french violin?

    But what does the label say? It is a misconception, that all Markies are ugly. I kind of like the one below.
