Violins of Hope
InfiniteM posted a topic in The PegboxSo I was pasted down my grandmas violin from my dad and he doesn’t know much a bout the violin other then his mom gave it to him when he was little hoping he would learn violin. He never did. I have learned violin so he though he should give it to me. I started doing some research on the violin as it looks unique. I found some information online about the violins of hope. I read that these violins are from the Holocaust. I don’t know if someone in my family played it in the Holocaust or how someone in my family received the violin if it was from out of our family. My grandmas side of the family ( my dads side ) came to America from Germany. I know I have a lot of German in my ancestry as I do a lot of ancestry.com and I did 23 and me as well. Doesn’t anyone have any more information on the violins of hope, maybe how many are them are there ? What there value is ? The only marking inside the F hole is “ Germany “ no serial number or any other words. The violins case has a label “ George Barton music company quality Instruments Minneapolis Minn “ so I don’t know if there’s potentially a place the violin was boughten from after the Holocaust or if it’s just where the violin was bought from or if the case is even relevant to the violin or not I don’t know. But any information on the violin and history to it , value , answers . I would love some more information.
Hello friends: A friend of my mom wanted to sell me an old German violin. It has a label inside which says: copy of Giovan Paolo Maggini made in Germany From the information on the Internet, I assume that it is a German factory violin of the 20th centrury. It has been repaired several times and it has 4 scrolls and a nice tone. Yes I really like that tone. On its back there's a pattern, I'm wondering if it means the brand of the factory or something else. I think the pictures may help. My mom's friend tell me it should cost 4500 dolars. Can anyone give me some advice? Thanks, Monica
“French? Italian?...” such indifference! I do think it’s missing “German?” I believe it is an early 20th century German VSO. That edging is flat as a pancake.
friedr. aug. glass violin repair and appraisal requested
Lumbrix posted a topic in The PegboxI purchased a German Glass violin that needs some repair. First, the finish has been sanded to bare wood on the top. Second, it has a machine head because the peg holes were enlarged. Third, the tone seems affected because the grafted (nailed) neck contacts the top of the instrument (perhaps because of the amount of arching in the top or because of the neck installation and angle). Fourth, there is a crack in the fingerboard, so it needs replacing. I am interested in an appraisal and in getting the instrument put in better condition. The label reads: friedr. aug. glass verfertigt nach; Antonius Stradiuarius Fies; Fabrikat in Cremona 1737; Made in Germany.
German School 19th century violin
millant posted a topic in The PegboxHi all and Happy New Year, I have owned this violin for 17 years now and it´s one of my favourite violins, but all I say is it´s a german violin from 19th century. Can you anybody please help with a more accurate and precise information? Anybody see an individual maker or workshop here? Label says Joseph Horenstainer Musicant Mittenwald an der Iser 1834. I have played it for many years and I really love its tone; an easy to play violin too. A really light thin violin with some nice craquelature almost all over back, top and scroll. Thanks in advance!! Luis
Violin ID, please help me
AlexiaNikolaya posted a topic in The PegboxPlease help me. I have inherited violin from my grandpa, he had it for decades. He said it is very old, he bought it for golden ducats from a good violinist. Someone told me it is Klotz because of symbols imprinted on its back. Please help me and tell more about rough estimation. I have heard that original Klotz violins value from 5K euros to even 10-15Ks.http://www.flickr.com/photos/133490948@N04/

Where and when are they from?
nttfkz posted a topic in The PegboxI'm practicing on these two violins. They come with common 'Stradivarius' label like other factory violins. I think some features may help roughly identify which town/area it was made and when it was made, like before/after WWI, WWII. I hardly know such mapping and think someone here may be able to help. Here are pictures for the first violin. It has no corner blocks. Varnish is not original. http://s1265.beta.photobucket.com/user/nttfkz/library/German%20Violin%201 This is my second violin. It has only 2 lower corner blocks. I believe it comes with original varnish. The color tends to be yellow or light orange. This violin is really loud comparing to the other. It's also rich and has more overtone, but I feel that wood is too thick, or maybe because of high arch that makes it also sounds 'hard'. http://s1265.beta.photobucket.com/user/nttfkz/library/German%20Violin%202 I used to look through the end pin hold and see that both have carved-in bassbar.
