  1. New dendrochronology evidence possibly pointing to a connection between Strad and Amati. The rest is mostly a summary of what we have discussed - almost ad nauseum - re Strad's secret varnish or method of wood prep. This article implies it might just be animal glue... Anyway, I think an interesting summary, with of course, the typical slight inaccuracies expected from non-players/non-makers. This article does give a few details as to where and how samples were taken and examined. Plus lots of good references. What do you think??? https://cen.acs.org/analytical-chemistry/art-&-artifacts/Stradivari-meets-science/101/i15
  2. Hi all. So here it is. This is the violin that was the spark that caused fire in my head. Although I've got some conjuctures nothing's still have no idea who has made this violin. Just to make it more clear I've decided to ask Peter Ratcliff to obtaine belly dates which he naturally did. I would like to thank him again here. Indeed he is really a pro :hail: What I have is my description and Peter's data of course. Measurements in spite of wood wear could not match exactly typical of that which father of this violin used to make. Measurements: LOB 354mm, Widths: 161/107/199,5. Peter's data: "The bass side visible latest ring is dated 1824 and the treble side 1817. You are right about the two sides being different and it is quite clear when I examine the plotted data on a graph.(...) The strongest correlations by far are with instruments made in Mittenwald, and that wood is quite typical of the one they used, but I wouldn't say exclusively. In view of the latest ring date of 1824, we have to assume that the violin was not made before about 1835 or so, possibly a little later, bearing in mind the exceedingly tight growth at the end of the series, (at the centre joint), and that is where some wood has to be removed to create the joint between the two sides prior to gluing the surfaced together. I also tested the data against published Master reference chronologies from the ITRDB (international tree-ring data bank) and found that both sides correlated with several at very significant levels of significance at the dates above, the best correlations with Swiss and Southern Austrian references." I've got some photos of it. Some of them are taken before restoration. Head (which was replaced with neck) and body was in bad state. I would say someone tried to change scroll with blunt knife. Lower ribs were replaced before I bought it years ago. They're two piece. If you would be so kind please help to identify it. If any more photo measure is needed I would be happy to deliver it. Regards!
  3. Hi, I am interested in doing a dendrochronology test in a violin. As I am situated in Vienna, I asked myself if there is such a test near. Thanks in advance for help.
