  1. Were paper strips used in Mittenwald and Passau as well as Prague and Vienna, late 18 c?
  2. I know the feeling ..., but ask again, and somebody would ! I like it! Strangely, I don't see the rib corners in new pictures so clearly, but still only can agree with BF comment and the scroll fluting (in the context of Mkn-Schn) is pointing to workshop(s) that have been discussed here before, if I am not mistaken (?)
  3. Nice violin, particularly I like the back wood. Seems German to me, but reason why more knowledgeable people may be reluctant to react, is that they don't see details they would like to. Angled views are not very helpful. There is a thread somewhere up, how to photograph for ID purposes. You might start from measuring the length of body (without button).
  4. Thanks! That was indeed my question that I did not yet ask the MN-s: do you see, with your trained eye and experience, features that promise more than just "generic Mirecourt".
  5. F Meynieu luthier Bordeaux Charles Resuche Eleve de Gand et Bernardel Fecit anno 1902 No 242 ............................................... LOB: 358 mm
  6. Thanks! I tell the LOB a bit later, violin not at hand at the moment. What I remember of the label: Bordeaux, Charles Resuche, 1902, No 242. Also was mentioned the Bordeaux workshop founder, from whom CR apparently bought (?) the business; and that CR had formerly worked for Gand & Bernardel.
  7. Thank you very much; I did not recognise the piece, but it was so sublimely baroque for me...
  8. Hello folks, once again, Violin IDs are not so extremely numerous at the moment (am I wrong?) so I dare to put out one from my collection, once again. Pictures are this time better than my usual ones, as they are shot by one of the luthiers, I currently cooperate with...
  9. Thank you very much and stay strong!
  10. Quite a story! But why did you sell?
  11. Must have been good enough to do so?
  12. Very cool! shared it right away
  13. Including Schönbach.
