  1. Maestronet was compromised here. They are using everyones posts to build an AI program to make a fake. Why do you think they are asking questions about identifiers etc? and cases and strads in attics? WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!!!
  2. Google Theresienstadt Jeffrey, If you don't get rid of this piece of shit I will presume you are complicit
  3. Are you still upset that you were rejected from Art School? Jeffrey, pull the plug and call the police
  4. Do you have pictures of when people visited this exhibition? Thanks for sharing!
  5. That pin mark is really interesting, and what beautiful craquelure . What did you say the violin was?
  6. I think something may not be working as you intended
  7. The pin mark is not interesting and the craquelure is not nice.
  8. Why do you want to learn how to see instruments Al? Is it so you can find sleepers?
  9. I know who you are. Our core values do not compute p.s. I find your work "tacky" (/ˈtæk.i/)
  10. Nice one Bruce, you are a friendly connoisseur. (so am I, honestly)
  11. Very true, some people don't understand nuance
  12. A case in a case in a space in a place. Reminds me of a Russian doll
  13. Your move, grasshopper
  14. setting=violin making forum validity=very important for violin makers to analyse and question images, and the text which accompanies them How do you know who flipped the image first?
  15. are you inviting me to engage in a philosophical debate about the violin trade?
  16. care to explain why the chairs in the top left corner of the bottom picture aren't distorted?
  17. Do you like over exaggerated asymmetrical outlines?
  18. Your posts are a wonderful example of a craftsman who has a deep connection to his surroundings. Thanks for sharing
  19. The Hawkes and son price list for 1914 gives a good insight on how modern Italian violins were valued at the time they were being made. Hawkes were the sole importers in England for E.Rocca, G. Pedrazzini and G. Schwarz. G.Pedrazzini = £24 E. Rocca = 25 guineas (equiv. £26) G. Schwarz = £20 T.E. Hesketh, (Manchester, u.k.) = 20 guineas (equiv. £21) Bohuslav Lantner (Prague) = £10 Hawkes and son "Maggini" violin = £7 7s
  20. It's highly likely that this is a genuine Oddone violin
  21. from what I understand the pigment "Van Dyke Brown" was traditionally made with the Cassel earth, whereas "Van Dyke Crystals" are unrelated, made from walnut husks and still widely available (at the least the ones from Cornelissen are)
