English violin?

Recommended Posts

I can't see any immediate explanation - the grain appears completely continuous, so they have to be scratches rather than signs of alteration.

I agree with Martin - it doesn't really look to be a "cut and shut". There are no matching marks on the back and altering a viola fop to fit a back would be more trouble than carving a new one, wouldn't it? Oh well, at £999 dollars I'll never know!
