      Read the rules at the top of this page before posting.   12/30/16

      The rules are copied here for your convenience: The Auction Scroll is for sharing opinions on instruments listed and offered for sale online on this site or any other. It is for the civil exchange of ideas and opinions about the instruments themselves. The opinions expressed are solely those of the poster, and do not represent the opinion of Maestronet or its forum moderators. Personal attacks on individuals will not be tolerated and will result in banning from participation in the forums. For example you are free to state that in your opinion a certain instrument labelled such and such is or is not authentic. You can also support your opinion with facts as you see them, as long as you make no reference to the individual or company listing the instrument or use hearsay in your argument. You cannot say for example that such and such an instrument is not authentic because you know the individual listing the instrument is not trustworthy or you believe the company routinely uses false descriptions of its instruments. That will get you banned. Similarly, you can defend the authenticity of an instrument with the facts as you see them, as long as personal attacks and hearsay are not used. For example, you could refer to the shape of the f holes in support of a certain origin, but what you cannot do is attack any individuals that may hold a different opinion. This is a unique forum, so please abide by these rules to ensure it continues in its current form.

Early Mittenwald? Possible klotz family/school?

I recently came across this violin on ebay. Although it does seem to have some issues it appears to be well made. My amateur guess is that its a mid 18th century Mittenwald violin, however, I would like to have your opinions on what you think this violin may be and possibly, who made it 

One unique feature I noticed on this violin is that the scroll eye seems to be filed down at an inward angle.

the scroll graft appears to be fake. I don't know what's going on with the neck inset, but it looks like a major accident happened there.

there's a lot of damage everywhere, on the table and the C-bouts, and I really can't think why you'd want to have this.

The scroll looks nothing like old mwald to me. The body looks old but doesnt pop out to me as mwald just looking at the outline and f-holes. But I guess it could be, you would have to check out the construction details.

It looks revarnished and as others said it has had some damage. Id move along.
