  1. I considered "model" but nothing there looks like a "d."
  2. Okay, first there's a large brand saying: "reproduzzione antonius straduarius andreas morelli" ...and below that is a label saying: "andreas morelli hand-made reproduction antonius stradivarius anno 1724" ...and on that label is written -- see the photo. I can make out "violin" and "serial number 792" but what are the first and third words?
  3. I don't get it. It says it sold for 16,000, 18,800 with premium. However, they SAY the premium is 20% which would be $3,200, so the WITH premium price SHOULD be $19,200. Did I miss something?

  5. Ohhhhh, how I long for the "good ol'days" when this thread was actually about a violin auction.
  6. Curious how this thread started with a violin and found its way to "hysteria" -- something "Freudian" at work?
  7. Curious about the top -- is that spruce?
  8. Alas, no -- per the Goodwill site: "Unfortunately purchases made through Goodwill would not be tax deductible, only donations made to Goodwill would qualify as being tax deductible. When you purchase an item through shopgoodwill.com you are paying fair market value for the item."

  10. Sort of off topic question: was there a "logic" to the peculiar arching? Easier to carve? Less chance of cracking? Etc. etc...
  11. The thing is that -- to me at least -- the "Feury" violin looks older than something from 2014. So it's either a good job of antiquing or else a fake label. But if it's a fake label, why would anyone choose a "maker" by a non-descript, perhaps non-existent, group calling itself "Workshop of Young Violins"?
  12. I'll ask again, does anyone know anything about "Workshop of Young Violins" in San Francisco? I never heard of them and Google isn't helping.
  13. I'm curious about: https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/100818602_feury-charles-san-francisco-violin The label says, "YVS Feury Charles Made in the Workshop of Young Violins San Francisco 2014" I've never heard of a "Workshop of Young Violins" and google isn't helping. Anyone have any info about them?
  14. Any SOUND samples available?
