One piece of history

Recommended Posts

The other day I bought this one in ebay. I think it could be an example of the "dutzenarbeit" work.

What do you think? Mittenwald or markneukirchen... Shönbach? What age?

What would you do?would you use it or let it as it is?

Well, the lion has a weird looking eyes. But it is handmade or may be made with machinery?
Someone could tell me more about its origin? and if it has any historical value.

It looks like the sort of lion one occasionaly encounters on Mittenwald „Verleger“ violins, such as Neuner & Hornsteiner. You will need to carve a tongue for it, so good luck with that (not as easy as you might think!)

then you think it is not important to keep it as it is and use it?
