Hi all, I am new here. A friend has asked to get an old violin into playing condition, it looks interesting and isn't like the normal sort of German of French ones one sees. It has the scrap of a label I cant make out, but has 1742 on it. The text I can see looks printed. Its has been re-necked and had extensive repairs as it looks like it has been smashed at some time. It has no inlaid purfling but I think it has been inked. the scroll is elongated and rather crude with a wide pegbox. I took some photos but cannot see how to attach them. I clicked on image and lost all I had written! I am hoping to find out who made it. Nick
