Early Mittenwald? Possible klotz family/school?

Recommended Posts

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.
