    Violin branded Nicolas Chappuy on the back. Bearing multiple repair labels, one saying it was re graduated by Asa Warren White in Boston.. Any thoughts on ID?
  2. I am doing some repairs on this violin and the client would love to know something about where it was made. Her father purchased it in 1946. It bears no label. It has a neck graft. Thanks for looking!
  3. I bought this cello, it was abandoned in a basement and i dont have any idea about it, id would like to know if its worth repairing, it has a few open cracks, and info would be greatly apreciated, if you need any extra photos let me know, Thanks !!!!
  4. Where would you say this violin originated? (Neither the pictures nor the violin belongs to me. It is a violin for sale, and the owner believes it to be of Italian/French origin, and definitely not cottage industry. ) It bears a label "Hirish" inside apparently.
  5. I would appreciate some help regarding the following 2 violins. VIOLIN 1: Label: Otto Viener in Mittenwalt an der Iser 19(49) - the 49 is written in. One piece back. 2 piece bottom rib construction The fluting doesnt go in to the VERY end of the violin scroll. Anyone know if this "Otto Viener" was an individual maker or is it just a label used by someone who sold imported violins? Any idea if this violin was made in Mittenwalt? I have my doubts, due to the scroll fluting not going in till the very end. Maybe he was someone who imported violins from other areas and placed his own label? Photos: Please keep in mind the lighting is very bad. The violin is more orange colored than the "redness" which appears in the photos. I can try to take better pictures tomorrow in better light should it be nessicary. See first reply for VIOLIN 2.
  6. This is currently my only old violin, claiming to be a Vuillaume copy, but I'm not sold that it goes further than the stamp/fake label. The instrument was recently set up and repaired to be in playing condition after being out of order for a very long time (came to me with open seams and the tailpiece glued to the top!) After being on the forums for a small amount of time (very small compared to the lifespan of a violin) I can guess the most likely answer to where the violin was made, but thought I'd ask anyway, just got my picture posting privilege so might as well use it while the instrument was at my local luthier, the original fittings (ebony) were removed and you can see that the violin has pins holding the neck and tail blocks in place (wooden pins, not nails.) I tried to picture the areas I noticed people normally ask for, if I missed something in my inexpert photoshoot, feel free to ask for it, but I doubt it'll be necessary. Thanks for looking! Also, my apologies that the photos are upside down, guess I'm not 100% proficient with an Ipad.
  7. I have seen many threads where people ask for an ID of their random violin, and people always can chime in with ideas of places. This just amazes my untrained eye. So I have to wonder, what do you look for in a old French violin?
  8. Hi all, I'm looking for a new violin, and I've taken a fancy to an old French violin. We've been told it's an 1880s Mirecourt, ( Could you please tell me what you think of it, and possibly find out the maker? The back measures 35.9 cm in height, it is very flat, and it gives a clear but warm, resonant sound. Thanks, Carlos R.
  9. Hi everyone, this is a violin that my orchestra director has let me use to see if I am interested in purchasing it. It sounds beautiful, I just have some questions about it that I would like to get cleared. I also have a violin bow that I purchased last year that has very little information available. The certificate says that it has an effaced label of GUIDANTUS. The varnish is very retouched. The body length is 13 7/8" scant. Also, it writes that it is a flat model and that both the top and back is completely lined with a strip of ebony. It could have been decorative and protection from further wear. What is the actual reason? Is this style of repair a style of a certain school of violin making? The scroll is also grafted to a new neck and I can see the new wood. The bow is labeled A. FRACALOSSI and is mounted with only MOP and no silver. The violin was appraised in 2002 for 25,000 USD and is being sold for 7,500 USD. The bow was bought for 1,350 USD. Is the violin worth it? I also would like to just know a little more of both of these beautiful instruments. Thank you!
  10. I have decided to make a new string color ID reference guide. I need to alter some things already, but I cannot do it until I get home tonight. I plan to make the beads match the actual colors on the peg ends as well. (Ex.I believe all of Pirastro is black). I want to keep this up to date, and extremely accurate. If you have any changes that need to be made, or news ones that I have forgotten please let me know. Pictures would be amazing because I could just match hose specific colors. Thank you.
  11. Hello All, I've been lurking for a bit and joined up because I think you may be able to help me figure out more about my great-grandfather's violin. Link to Photobucket albulm: It's label is gone, written in fountain pen is 1892. It has real lower blocks but no uppers, a proper neck block, fake graft lines on the pegbox, and the bass bar is glued in. It looks like the back was refinished because it's just too clean and I can see brush strokes. There is a repair mark (I think) from August 1922 I just can't make out what all it says: There is also some sort of marking on the button that I can't really make out, I thought someone here may have seen it before: I'm trying to get some of the remaining children to tell me if my great-grandfather purchased it here in the States or if he may have purchased it before he left Germany. Please feel free to look through the albulm of pics (some by me and some from the Luthier that repaired it for me) and let me know what you think. If you need better pics of any particular area just say so and I will add them to the albulm. Oh, and in case you're wondering, it sounds wonderful. Thanks again for taking the time to look and lend your help.
