Good morning all, I come back to you with a violin which I think was made in Mittenwald. The bottom rib is in one piece, the linings are inserted into the corner blocks (mortise). It seems to correspond from what I have read here. There are other points that I noted later, the table is made in one piece like the back (the violin has I think was very badly refinished and we see sanding marks). There is also an inscription "Rep by E.Dodds Edinbourgh 1875", but I do not see what repair was made, maybe a modification of the bassbar ?? Voila, if you can tell me what you think about it, don't hesit
Here is a cello I am slowly working on... a few questions: the corner blocks are rounded off prior to meeting the corners, is this indicative of a quick workshop job with an outside mold? And, I can see there is a label underneath, but why cover with a standard ER Roth label?
