Well, there's a wide variety of things to suit all pockets.

A beautiful inlaid violin case, made by W E Hill & Sons has caught my eye. The Strad which is for sale has nothing to do with the Stern Collection. Anyway, you wouldn't want it. It's an early model, not of the 'golden period'....

Wouldn't want it just because it's not 'golden period'?? It just happens to be one of the best examples of his earlier work, and hasn't been on the market in something like 60 years. Normally examples this fine don't get to auction - the only ones that do are the same half dozen or so that make the rounds constantly. I wouldn't talk down this instrument unless you've seen it - after all, it was good enough for Jan Kubelik, wasn't it??

I believe that the ex-Kubelik Strad was never owned by Stern...someone correct me if I am wrong, please! At least, the Kubelik Strad presented by Tarisio is not part of Stern's estate. It is being sold on behalf of "a North American university", to quote Tarisio's website. To my best knowledge, Stern was one of those "Guarneri" soloists...hence his Zyg copies of the Vicomte de Panette and Ysaye, both of which he owned (and presently are being presented by Tarisio). My two cents! Thanks- KM
