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 hesitate if you want more pictures. The joint was badly made between ribs and bottom, it gave me the opportunity to defeat. I will have to see her again, I will practice the same thing on the table afterwards. A beginning of crack (effe) will also have to be consolidated a priori. And I'll take the opportunity to clean the varnish in the back. You may found my english is strange, it's a google translation, so excuse me span widget
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?
