Hello all 

Just bought a rather nice 3/4 violin with blackened pegbox and other features of a MarkN violin

Inside is label on the soundpost side with J Wagner 1910 hand written

Does that ring any bells?

Valkyries? No not yet!  

I bought a Cello on auction and they threw in 4 violins of which this was one - so free, but with a small crack!

I will post pics today

No not warped

I thought it would make a nice little step up violin for a budding violinist

Even if I donate to a worthy  yet impecunious player?

Wouldn't that all depend on how sweetly it sounds and how easily it plays when you're done with it?   Excelsior!! [That's Latin for busting your tail to achieve the summit, then having the mountain collapse under you anyway.] :lol:

Get him/her a reasonably priced Chinese fiddle. Chances that this will sound/play well are very slim.
