Dear experts and followers of online auctions, As you have probably read the violin of Pavel Vernikov have been stolen in a Geneva train station. It was a 1747 G.B. Guadagnini violin in a grey GEWA plastified case with 4 bows- Eury, Maire (Gold Mounted), Sartory and Peccatte dedicated to (J. Verdier, Paris 1877 on the silver part of the frog). If it has been a commissioned crime the instrument might not appear - if not it will sooner or later appear on some auction, or on internet. All info can be sent to Pavel Vernikov or Svetlana Makarova via facebook. Thanks for your kind help- look for
I've read many theories about the superiority of violins by the old masters -- theories that explain the great price differences between those instruments and modern ones. These theories include: superior materials, special wood preparation, natural aging, secret varnish, superior craftsmanship, etc. Does a separate set of theories explain why classic violin bows bring such high prices? Has that been discussed on Maestronet, and can anyone point me to that discussion? Thanks in advance for suggestions.
