I just took in a very nice, well built violin signed as Ford S. Jr for repairs. It has low to medium flame on ribs and back. Age is hard to tell because it appears to be barely even played but has older style modern fittings. Impressive is the well done, very fine purfling.

I don't find anything for Ford S. Jr.

The closest I see is Fred G. Sears, Jr.

He worked in Amherst, MA, in the 50's and 60's...

Is the name clearly 'Ford' ?

Yes the spelling is definately F-O-R-D, written in cursive, with pencil, more than 3/8" tall, slightly east of the bass side f hole.

Thanks for trying, Scott
