  1. I got to take some new photos. Does it help?
  2. Sorry about the photos. I didn’t take them with identification in mind and right now I don’t have the violin on hand. What indicates that it’s Mirecourt?
  3. In the spirit of learning I'd like to ask you to share your opinion on what this violin could be. There is no label. If you could also point any particularly good or bad craftsmanship it would be great.

    Does any of these methods indicate better craftsmanship (or better quality instrument) or is it a matter of personal preference?
  5. Good point, and this is something that I'm definitely interested too!
  6. That is an accurate summary. From a perspective of someone that knows very little about the construction process, I figured it would be beneficial to be able to tell apart different methods of joining pieces together. I also have no intention of becoming a world class expert, and having a completely unrelated to music carrier I don’t have possibility to inspect closely hundreds or thousands of instruments. That being said, I really hope that this doesn’t mean I have no chance of learning at least a little bit. And I’m a woman, by the way
  7. Are there any resources for someone that would like to learn to identify violins? For example pictures pointing out differences in scrolls, rib joints etc.
  8. Pity, I hoped was an interesting feature
  9. There is purfling, it's just barely visible in the darker parts. I attach some more photos form the auction website. But speaking generally not about this particular violin, were notchless f-holes popular at some point? I couldn't find too many photos.
  10. Good point, I haven’t thought of that.
  11. Are f-holes without notches like the one of the photo characteristic of any particular region or time period?
  12. I’m impressed how knowledgeable people here are. And willing to share their knowledge too. Are there books or websites with pictures showing how, for example, different rib joints look?
  13. I saw that thread, but the photos are from a craigslist-type website where it's listed as a Bisiach. I really like the look of this violin but wanted to at least partially verify it before I travel to try it. There were two more photos that I attach now
  14. Thank you, everyone, it's really interesting. I'm curious, what is the giveaway that it's not a Bisiach or what makes it interesting? If it's not something that you'd like to share on a public forum perhaps you could send a dm?
  15. Hello, Is the violin from the photos fake or could it be an authentic Leandro Bisiach violin? I’ve tried to compare it to instruments on tarisio but it’s hard to do when you don’t know what to look for.
