18Th century violin?

Recommended Posts

I would probably say more likely mid 19th century, Saxony or Schonbach area. . I would say that it is a through neck model in which the neck was rebuilt at the heel and mortised into a block. But it may possibly still have its through neck and was just built up to look that way.

Hi!

Thanks for your answer.

I hoped it was from the 18th century.

Best Regards!

Concordo com a Saxônia, mas eu pessoalmente não descartaria o final do século XVIII ou o início do século XIX.

Is it even the original neck ?

The current upstand is very high which has been achieved with two wedges. The arching is also very high and an original baroque style flat neck would never have cleared the top arching.

Was this built on an inside form ?

It would be good to get a picture of the end rib to see if it is joined or whole.

This was the typical making style/method in Vogrland untill mid 19th C. The through neck is very often higher than „the belly arching“. These violins had the ribs built on the back ie. without any form, inside or outside. Yes, it is the original neck, if manipulated in the interim.

Thanks, yes, of course, I should know this by now.

I just imagined that the whole wedge would have been ebony, but of course that would be far too expensive.

So the main wedge under the fingerboard is original and the second smaller wedge is a slight neck reset ? A bit like an Italian baroque violin but cheaply done.
