Gone With The Wind


Recommended Posts

The 1685 may have been smaller, it was one of the "fleur de lis" specimens; the later 2 may have been more robust.  I looked at my notes from the past few VSAs, and fnote that a 1695 made the rounds in 2014 and 2015, and there were also 3 specimens in Cleveland in 2012, perhaps the year you alluded to when you brought one.  Gotta love the VSA....where else can mere mortals see the real thing?

I believe 2012 was the year I referred to...  Chris, Jim Warren and I put the group together (and worked with Ellis Hershman on the insurance and security)... but there were two Peter of Mantua fiddles (the one I brought was the Baron Knoop; 1707), and one Peter of Venice fiddle that year.  Also a Carlo Bergonzi, a Grand pattern Nicolo Amati, a Hieronymus II Amati, a Rogeri, etc.  

 

Yes...  The VSA is great in that regard.  Would have liked to see the German bow exhibit as well.
