  1. Better photos of the base of the scroll.
  2. Thank you for your input, George! I believe so too, especially after all of the information you wonderful people have provided.
  3. And I think someone asked about bridge measurements. E string height is just below 3 mm and G is just below 4 mm.
  4. Thank you, George and Shelbow! Redone measurement is 14 1/4 inches.
  5. Top, should I do it from the bottom? Again, I am a bit inexperienced still.
  6. Here is a side by side with my current violin (right).
  7. A little back story might help, I work at the shop where this came in. This has actually been in the backroom for over 4-5 years. I found in in with a bunch of old cases and violins in need of extreme repair. I don't believe it has been touched since it was purchased from the owner. Oh and for those that asked, it is 14 7/8 inches from button to bottom.
  8. I'll get some measurements tomorrow when I go into work!
  9. I was thinking of purchasing it because I do enjoy the sound and looks of it. They're asking $2000. Is that too much? (I thought it might be)
  10. Hello! This violin came in and I'm not sure what to think of it. Does anyone have an idea of who this was made by and how much it may be worth? I am still rather inexperienced and have never seen one like this. -Mary

    I do believe some of the cracks are open (which was why it was....cheap. Under $300). I buy these to work on so I do not have to worry about messing up a shop owned instruments or a customer's instrument. This one I am hoping to learn how to cleat. The one by the F hole is closed and solid. I think this will be a good project for that since the cracks do not go along the bassbar and will not require a soundpost patch.

    Do you believe this to be a decent quality violin? I know on the "Hopf" cottage violin I restored, I had to regraduate the top because it was hacked into shape. I was hoping this one wouldn't need that.....

    Thank you for the information! I wish that was my work table, however those photos are from the eBay listing. I believe it to be the owner of Tulsa Violins. Very nice guy!

    eBay purchase

    Hello! I recently purchased this on eBay and was wondering if anyone had any information on it. The repair tag inside seems fake to me. This will be another restoration project for me. Learning to cleat and possibly make a soundpost patch. Is this German? If so, around what age do you believe it is? Is this a cottage industry piece? Thank you! -Mary
  15. Thank you! We did that, however I'm not sure we did it correctly.....our posting hasn't shown up yet.
