  1. 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 hesit
  2. Hi, I am interested in buying these 2 violins. Please have a look at the photos. The first 7 are from 1 violin the other 4 or from the second violin. What can you information do you have about these? Are they of any particular value? Where and when they are from? What's the difference in value between a Mittenwald and a Markneukirchen violin? Thanks Rachel
  3. I travel quite a bit for work anyway, but it would be an extra trip to check this out... turn it into a father son trip? What do you think?
  4. Hi, I have recently come into possession of this violin at auction, at what I believe is an extremely favourable price. It is unlabelled, and there is no evidence of any label being removed. It has numerous repaired cracks and a back crack that is close to the soundpost but far enough from it that the soundpost is not bearing weight on it. The back crack has been repaired with reinforcing studs and seems very stable. All repaired cracks seem stable. The soundpost is fitted well. There is evidence of worm damage. Length of back : 358mm Vib String Length : 327mm Width Up
  5. Hello Everyone, I am an adult beginner looking for a violin. I came across a Koniglich Bayer J. A. Baader Mittenwald 1912 and I wanted to know if this is a good instrument to invest in? I looked up information on Mittenwald to understand what that meant, but honestly it was difficult for that history to translate into whether this particular violin would be good. It will need some work and there is some sort of damage on the back (a groove maybe) that I'm trying to get more information on. I know people sometimes see dates on a violin and think it automatically means something wh
  6. Hi folks; I came across this violin recently, with some interesting features. It is not mine yet, as the label on the pics evidently tell. I wondered if anyone had a clue wich country it comes from (german ? french?) if it had been submitted to an antiquizing process, and if it is worth acquiring/repairing. What are the marks at the scroll ? the bottom rib seems heavily damaged or is it only superficial ? Thanks a lot for your help, LJ
  7. What is your opinions on originality etc. I would like to know if it's real or what.
  8. I recently purchased this violin, which I suppose may be some 19th century French workshop violin, & a bow with a stick that has some figure t appearing possibly as snakewood, no stamps or markings.The violin has square cleats on the back seam, and ebony pins, one at the neck block in the top, and another in the endblock area. LOB: 35.6cm, neck 130mm, stop 195mm. The top arch seems quite flat,purfling has very narrow blacks, and the scroll is fluted to the end. The neck block is rounded and not square shouldered, the label has no maker or country, but does seem to have 19th c. meshed/scree
  9. This time I hope I make my homeworks. I think this is a Mittenwald violín imported to UK by John Turner mid 19th c. It is fire branded 3 times, 2 in the top where the bridge must be placed, and 1 down the neck near the scroll. And with 2 more fire stamps in the back and in the neck. The scroll has too fire stamped symbols. Inside it is full blocked and lined and it has a piece of paper in the mid of the back joint. The bassbar seams to be too short and more crude work than the rest of the inside work. It has a notch in the one piece botton rib. What is your opinion?
  10. 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.
  11. I wanted to thank everyone who reached out to help me track down the general value of the violin my grandmother gave me. I also wanted to let you know that I sold it to a local luthier shop in Columbus, Ohio called The Loft where they should give it any repairs it may need and eventually offer it for sale.
  12. I recently came into possession of a violin whose maker label says: "Made in Mittenwald Modell Klotz fecit 1928 sub auspiciis Leo Aschauer" I'm just looking for information about this instrument, although it would be nice if someone pointed me into the direction of a seller. I know very little about violins, and haven't played one since I was 14, though trying to tell my grandmother this is impossible. This was given to me by said grandmother who got it from a friend because they all still think I play.
  13. Recently I have found this violin. At first I thought in vieux Paris (yes, I have to learnt a lot) But when I opened the violin my opinion change. BlankFace tell me it could be from Mittenwald, but there is somethings that maybe could put it in other direction. What is your opinion? Thank you
  14. I am taking certain risk to overpopulate this forum with similar issues (recent Brompton item 100, etc) but will nevertheless take that chance. I believe that the instrument in pictures may originate from Mittenwald and popular "Late 18th century" could also be the case. Am I wrong? But does your sharp I spot anything that would allow to be more specific? Is that back maple? If not, what would that indicate? I apologise for bad pictures and give my other observations: scroll fluting goes as far it may go, bottom rib is of one piece and saddle is let 5...6 mm into it.; cor
  15. So I was hoping, with the help of experienced people, that I could make this topic into a checklist that you can have when trying to identify where your grandpa's Stradivarius, Grandma's Guadagnini, or that fiddle you found in the attic was made. I will list a few places, and if anyone want to share some of their time, please say what the traits would be for the violin. Most of what I used so far has been posted by Jacob Saunders in other threads. If I made a mistake with the categorizing, please note that the mistake is my fault. I will include all the quotes in Post # 2, as reference to who
  16. Hello, I would like to ask a very simple help- what is the model of this violin and if f holes look similar to any particular violin making school? Length of back 35,7 cm. Dendro results: 1783,85! Thanks
  17. Please 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.
  18. Before I started this topic, I've exhausted all my skills by searching all the resources that were available to me, especially Maestronet, but I have not found an answer. So: I've seen an ad in which the seller offers a violin on which he knew nothing except that owned by his family for about 40 years. As a rookie here, I am unable to use Gallery, then - here are some pictures, copy-paste from ad: Everything I've found: "SCHWARTZMANN, Anton Worked circa. 1750 Mittenwald Germany. Musician and luthier. Few instruments recorded. Anton Schwartzmann musi- / kant und Geigenm
  19. Since I've been away from the violin cosmos since investing my energy for decades in the piano, I wondered if getting a certificate of authenticity is a wise and practical route re: my Horensteiner, 1799, Mittenwald. Judging by dates of activity of various members of the Horensteiner family, it seems Joseph II would have been the maker, but how can one be sure. I read about lawsuits that have created a letigious cosmos re: the appraisal universe. How can an auction principle, for example, assess an instrument by photographs, etc. Isn't tone a primary focus, as it would be if I were selecting a
  20. I can't find my original post about my Hornsteiner 1799, Mittenwald. In any event, how does one get certification when it seems this is a task few do. The latest I heard was that there is so much liability in these certifications, since the maker is not living. Yet the contour, grain, finish, etc of the instrument plus tone should give clues. I wish I could post pics of my Hornsteiner, but I don't know how, so instead I'm including a link to footage that showcases the violin
