Hello! I bought this violin in South Africa from an online marketplace. A +-40 year old man told me that it was his grandmother's grandfather's violin. There is a stamp/engraving "Klotz" on the back. I'm really excited to hear how it sounds after some TLC and decent strings. If anyone can tell me anything about it, I will greatly appreciate it. Also, the case breaks if you touch it, very fragile with an interesting lock mechanism. Thanks in advance, everyone!
Hi I recently bought this violin, and I want to know if it’s a real Klotz or a copy, and an estimation of its price. Label is all covered with varnish but it says Josef Klotz Mittenwald and that’s all I can read. Also has another label that says Repaired by John A. Em... Dover N.H I took the photos with my Canon dslr.
Hi all, does anyone recognize this stamp in my 1736 German Violin? also, does anyone else feel the first character is not a 9 as a pencil stroke for 9 is very strong and would have endured over the centuries? Maybe 18th century German script initials and not even numbers? I also read an article that stated violins of this time had 56 parts. Initials and QC mark? Anyway, interesting mark and speculation. Thanks in advance, Jason
I recently came across this violin on ebay. Although it does seem to have some issues it appears to be well made. My amateur guess is that its a mid 18th century Mittenwald violin, however, I would like to have your opinions on what you think this violin may be and possibly, who made it One unique feature I noticed on this violin is that the scroll eye seems to be filed down at an inward angle. http://www.ebay.com/itm/152649649255?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
