    Bow stamp query

    I thought I would add a few more pics for ID maybe,it isn't easy to take good shots. at the moment it weighs 51gm,worth restoring?
  2. Anyone seen this brand ? it came with a nice JTL violin ,violin frog and button are maillechort. Thanks for any info.

    " Grancino"

    I appreciate the follow ups especially Micheal and Jacob,I hadn't seen this shape,outline combined with some other features size and like Delabo mentioned about the purfling,graft,fluting,etc. I think interesting still fits the bill .....but I was getting a little excited . I know the can't be much faith put in labels,to inexperienced eyes at least,but I thought I could see some variance in the font,leading me to think it was hand done.

    " Grancino"

    Yes I didn't mean to imply that, but just simply an interesting violin. I'm not sure whether you do this or not Michael but if you right click the image and open in a new tab you can enlarge the pic.If so what do you think of the font on the label because I thought it looked hand written? George I'm sure they aren't painted on, maybe Craigers can share his thoughts on this.

    Worth a dendro,very interesting,the label looks hand done. Experts?
  6. Great looking bow Germain,do you know what year this was made?
  7. That is a steal matesic can't wait for more pics.good for you.
  8. Hi Dwight My only thought was that it looks younger C.1780 + maybe Viennese? I agree that it is interesting.

    Exciting,I do hope they can find it and if they'd be happy to share what it reveals.

    Hi Eloffe, As far as I'm aware any significant work sold through the A.E Smith shop usually had a number on the right side of the fingerboard ,which was archived/recorded ....but good luck getting that info. Although Jacob has already stated what it is do you have any record of sale from the smith shop?

    French Violin?

    Just wanted to follow up and thank everyone for the input I had another expert in this field peruse the photos and although the top maybe carved the back is as Martin said pressed and 100% Mirecourt. Still don't know about the ink mark? was trying to avoid a Q ...a non ....violin HA, Here's a pic of the top in afternoon sun.
