Mirecourt, Saxony, Neither?
Maestrojobo posted a topic in The PegboxI'm having a hard time figuring out the origin of this instrument. It seems to have a lot of French attributes. It is 24" long, French boxwood pegs with MOP inlay, the saddle could be from anywhere I suppose, and the scroll looks to be French. The top and back both are one piece, which is another clue I think. Also the ribbing seems to be more present than normal German violins from the 19th century (if it is from that period) My confusion is in the varnish. There is no label. If you can identify a maker, Chanot, Schweitzer, even Peter Wamsley maybe (here's hoping), that'd be great. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
