There are so many fake label violin in the market and some articles said most of it are mass produced from East German. I once bought an 1/3 violin from a local dealer few years ago and he said it was an Vuillaume(he actually said it probably made by his son), Few years later, I wanted to trade up of full size violin, another dealer said it is a fake label from German or Czech. Although the sound wasn't bad, But still it was a bit expensive when I bought it. Is there any hints to tell if it is one of mass produced East German violin? What should I look at when I pick up an old violin apart from the sound and Label? Thanks
As I read some conversation here, I found some of the experts can tell if the violin constructed by BOB or inside mould by a just a photo. I wondering how and which part of the violin can tell the method of the construction. Just curious and would love to learn about it. Thanks
