  1. How would the 'in Brag' be written? Has nobody seen a label from this period and from Prague with the annotation, 'aus Brag?'
  2. From the looks...did this instrument ever have purfling?
  3. So with this 'case study' what is your opinions on this violin moving forward? Worth reviving?
  4. No, Colorado repair from the early 1900s
  5. the wood grain is beautiful still....
  6. It was very much damaged in a move in the early 20th century; here are more pictures for your review: Please tell me your thoughts.....
