  1. Exactly, the bow made by William Grieve Johnston, Pre 1904 Reference: THE HILL BOW MAKERS : 1880 - 1962 https://www.bvma.org.uk/shop/the-hill-bow-makers-1880-1962
  2. "RODIER A PARIS" the bow could be made by Louis MORIZOT FRÈRES workshop https://viaductviolins.fr/en/maker/morizot-freres.html
  3. I'm not sure, maybe something like: "TOURTE a PARIS"
  4. BTW it is natural hair not synthetic, the second part of the video at 05:40 minuets you can see very clearly the difference of the hair in both ends, at the lower side it is brownish instead of the upper side of the horse tail . https://youtu.be/aU4v0YvXD4s?t=340
  5. the best bow rehair ever, as French method, without using flame to burn the hair (just a perfect technique) (in 4 parts video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FU06LH6yJ6c&t=1s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aU4v0YvXD4s&t=1s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIVAJrXi1SQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atOxg0gRKxs&t=9s Good Luck

  7. Welcome back PhilipKT thanks for your topic Jacob
  8. "The Messiah"’ By Stradivarius from "Ashmolean Museum" website https://ashmoleanmuseum.tumblr.com/post/181219851503/antonio-stradivari
  9. The purpose of the layer of black coating is used for so many reasons such as; protection, stiffness, hardness or antiquing . you can find out of some old trade "German & French" instruments as student level, in 19th. century. for example : f-holes Peg-box (inside including the peg holes) scroll (both sides & back side) corner joints The idea of "blacken methods" I don't know exactly, but I think it came from French school, particularly "Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume" during his career around (1818 until 1875), I guess he inspired by a violin he owned which is referred to Stradivari you can find that the edges of the scroll are also lined in black. IMO
  10. stamped something like; "Eugene ............ s" "Eugene Corvisier" ?????
  11. it is very strange to me that is the bow branded on the audience side, instead of player side, unless of left-handed player maybe. it could be branded later by the importer or someone else. in general, your bow it seems to me like many other old Vogtlandish trade bows, stamped with fake brands for fun, such as; "Bausch, Hermann, Hoyer, Knopf, Dodd, Tourte, etc. ..." I agree with Jacob for sure, your bow is made by Batman

  13. for legal reasons, the words "Copy of" were often included on the labels after 1957, it must written in English, that could be officially, before that year no one mentioned "copy of" in English unless an honest firms mentioned something similar to that, such as "Reproduction", "Style of", "Modèle d'après" and so on. instead of facsimile labels. thanks guys
  14. until 1957, labelled them exactly as the master did. After that date, for legal reasons, the words "Copy of" were often included on the labels. https://www.afvbm.org/found-stradivarius-violin/

  16. the image is not clear enough, anyway to me, the old larger cleats had removed, then replaced with other used small cleats or reshaped them again, or had taken from older instrument. IMO
