violin identification


Recommended Posts

Schönbach "dutzendware" from the end of the 19th C.,quite a nice one. Bill, if he doesn't mind me saying so, is not accurate when he calls it "factory". These violins were made in a cottage industry system: the vm. went to the dealer with his wheelbarrow, fetched wood and bits, went home where he and the entire familly made 12 violins, and brought them back to the dealer, who(labeled) and sold it. Hense the name in German "dutzendware" (Dozen wares).
