  1. Saxon violin something between 1850-1880. Vogtlandish pattern and are original. I would guess it is something mid-19th century. My version: is worth giving them a chance. Englan version: Interior signed "Rprt v. F. Volomann in Glogau" he is only known as a repairman around 1880. Glogau was in Niederschlesien (lower Silesia), south-east of Saxony. However, he is only known as a repairman. German version: These violins were mass-produced in Schönbach and sold by many well-known dealers. Many were considered particularly valuable because of their antique-looking shape and often restored at great expense. Interior signed "Rprt v. F. Volomann in Glogau"(then Silesia). He is a descendant of a family of violin makers from Schönbach around 1880. However, he is only known as a repairman. But nothing what's worthwhile to repair here IMO. - it's that bad ?
  2. The f holes should be left alone, they are featuring a common Vogtlandish pattern and are original as they are now. I would guess it is something mid-19th century-ish - Thank you (F-holes no repair). German forum on Geige24? - yes. !!! I only found the information here - searching on the internet will destroy me one day :-) Thank you.
  3. The only thing I found on the Internet (Google) in German ! Volkmann Glogau ! . . . . . . . . Diese Geigen wurden massenhaft in Schönbach hergestellt und von vielen auch namhaften Händlern verkauft. Viele wurden wegen ihre antik anmutenden Form für besonders wertvoll gehalten und oft teuerst restauriert. Der Name deutet auf Volkmann Glogau (damaliges Schlesien) hin. Er ist ein Abkömmling einer Geigenmachersippe aus Schönbach so um 1880. Ist aber nur als Reparierer bekannt.
  4. 1) Violin believed to be owned by Robert Volkmann, interior signed "Rbrt v. F. Volomann en glogau"? Interior signed "Rbrt v. F. Volomann in Glogau". He is a descendant of a violinist's family around 1880. Glogau was in Niederschlesien (lower Silesia), south-east of Saxony. Violin in the cleaning phase, minor repairs needed, the signature was hidden under the label, f-holes damaged (Do I have to fix the f-holes: foto A) or B)? - pictures f-holes downloaded from the internet - I apologize to the owner of the photos). 2)Or Saxon violin something between 1850-1880? - Thx for comments.
  5. The ivory(?) lower saddle - probably yes. I will repair the violin and then we will see (in my opinion, a beautiful and interesting violin).
  6. thanks for the explanation - I understand
  7. I would like to know the origin of the violin (sell, keep, repair - not important). I think these violins come from the German region of Vogtland until well into the 19th century. In my opinion beautiful work - beautiful corner blocks and linings, violin head scroll etc. Thank you for your opinion (advice) - I will not question again and I didn't want to bother.
  8. I try the same, I'm looking for information, etc. (only in my free time). I'm sorry: Maestronet (all about the violin) + so much expert opinion and information about the violin. The question (violin identification) is a problem? Just write in the fireplace or it's worth fixing. Simply short. I don't want to touch anyone - just my observation.
  9. Do you think the corner blocks (top, bottom block) were allocated later?
  10. jacobsaunders Your opinion? Is it worth investing free time? German region of Vogtland Violin - is rightly located (if not Italian) :-) In my opinion, violins from the early 19th century - perhaps older: 1) violins need to be repaired 2) sound - I believe it will be fantastic. Old versus new violin? Grapes or wine? It always depends on the quality. I'm still learning (violins) - if you want to build a house and ask how, I'll help (I'm a bricklayer). If you ask a professional, he is silent. It's not personal - it just seems that way to me.
  11. sorry i don't understand the question? (I see nothing wrong with taking backs off, although I can't see the necessity here )
  12. The back side has been removed (allowed with 50 percent + upper block allowed). The first step is to clean the violin and check (front plate of the violin). No standard procedure - but it was necessary to do so. I would love to hear your opinion on these violins. Thank you.
  13. Fake Label: One hundred percent true - thank you.
  14. I apologize for the late response - I can't keep up (I'm married). Fake Label: One hundred percent true - thank you. I opened the violin and was pleasantly surprised. I think these violins come from the German region of Vogtland. Vogtland violin??? The makers in the Vogtland region clung to their traditional freeform construction with the neck and top-block made in one piece (the so-called ‘through-neck’) until well into the 19th century. In my opinion beautiful work - beautiful violin corner blocks and linings. What is the difference between Italian and German school (corner blocks)??? I devote more of my time to it - maybe it's worth it: Remove and replace the bass bar - or leave everything original?
  15. I was hoping the violin made in Pasek-on-Iser, Bohemia. label: Josef. syn Věnceslava Metelky. v Pasekách pod Krkonoši 1832 Josef Metelka was born in 1842 and died in 1880 - in my opinion, another false label.
