  1. There are some older violins from this small auction house in Florida. I think they are all from the same collector. Any thoughts on any of the violin in the collection? https://www.liveauctioneers.com/catalog/199331_important-fine-art-and-chinese-antiques/?terms=violin
  2. Just saw this auction on www.liveauctioneers.com. I think all the violins came from the same colletion? There is a violin with Poggi label looked pretty decent https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/100818601_violin-ansaldo-poggi-1938-label
  3. Any thought on who the maker may be?
  4. Yes the top and bottom had grooves cut for the ribs to go through
  5. Old French copied Itakian makers too?
  6. Old French? Label said Italian lol
  7. How about this fiddle? Anything interesting about it?
  8. Perhaps i didn’t make it clear in my op. Clearly it is not a Stainer, and based on the wood selection and the quality of purfling, i would expect this to be an above average grade copy. But what i am intrigued about it (not about the violin), is the fact that if the maker is talented enough, and had access to great materials, why made this fiddle so obvious a fake/copy? Why not find a label that is more resembled to this forger’s style if work and make it more believable? I know perhaps i put too much thoughts into this, and i apologize if i have wasted everyone’s time
  9. The part that has intrigued me the most is the detailed purfling work that it has veen done on a fiddle of this origin, plus the selection of wood. Lastly, if you are going to copy something, make it as closely as the original, yet this fiddle is so obviously not a Stainer. So i have found it interesting that the amount of time and details that the maker put in on the purfling, yet labelled it a Stainer while there was no resemblances to a Stainer.
  10. In your opinion, what would be a more appropriate verbiage to use
  11. It is interesting to me, and i am sorry to hear that you do not share the same intellectual curiosity
