Stainer violin ID and info required
tripplex posted a topic in The Pegbox
I've inherited a fiddle / violin that belonged to my great uncle, and I'm hoping to learn something of its provenance. My great uncle was good enough to play for dances and wedding receptions and such, but not a professional musician. He was actively playing in the first half of the 20th century, mostly in the American southeast, in the Carolinas. I know this is not an authentic Stainer violin, but I'm hoping some knowledgeable people on this forum might notice features that could suggest something about its real provenance? Any observations or opinions are greatly appreciated by me. Thank you! Will

Rue posted a topic in The PegboxYes...I know...probably Dutzenarbeit ...not esp. good quality. BassClef might appreciate the very dark varnish more than me (but I do like darker varnishes...just not quite to this chocolate brown level)... However...its just a tad different than some of the others...so I'm just wondering if it's only a variation on the theme...or if there's more to it... http://www.ebay.ca/itm/131039511894?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 ...and yes...while I might not want to show up to rehearsal with this violin...I like carved scrolls (as long as they're not creepy old man heads)...fancy purfling and other such extraneous goodies...
