He's probably too happy with his new violin to notice! ;)

Happy with the violin and the price they got it for I'd guess....

I thought it was expected to go for more than that.....It's the price of a second rate premiership footballer or a fourth rate French impressionist school painting....

The Russian Billionaire Igor Alotovkash bought for his 11 year old daughter who is known for her destructive temperment and resentment at being made to practice violin.

Always thought it was Alotovkashkij !

Melvin, you're speaking of the Lady Blunt? If so, it's sad. This is one of the few stellar examples remaining, and it will not remain so if played regularly, like most of the rest.

If I understand correctly, the reason it is in such a good state of preservation is that it's mostly been owned by collectors, not musicians.
