Georgina's Guarneri violin. You decide.

Recommended Posts

I thought that it is time to show you a few arty crappie photos from this phone of my Giuseppe Guarneri.

It goes without saying that I expect Fake to be thrown at the thing.

It's not a fake.

So like when you turn the D peg the A peg turns also?

Nice looking violin Petula, oops, I mean ma'am.

Any classical Cremonese violin will have pins in the back at the top and bottom blocks.

On this basis alone, it's not a Guarneri.

So when you say "it's not a fake", I'm not sure what you mean or what comments you are hoping for.

Of course not.  It's a real Markie, and a good looking one, too.  How does it sound?  :)

Is the black spot between the ff's from rosin build-up or is that part of the antiquing?   

It makes me think the bridge may have caught fire during a furious Flight of the Bumblebee rendition.

Well, it is not a fake violin, I'll give you that. It is a violin. Nothing to do with Cremona during the Golden Period. 

Aside from that, from the pictures provided, I can not say what it is, but I can with great certainty say what it is not.

...is it?

I think it might look English?

IMHO, sorting that would require more and better pictures plus maybe a look inside.  Some of the rural makers seem to have been copying from German originals. :)

Can you tell us why you're so sure it's real?

There are hundreds of thousands of Markneukirchen "Trade" (Dutzendarbeit) violins from the second half of the 19th C.that were supplied with facimile labels of all and sundry. To call these "Fake" or "Copy" is nonsense. They are just School violins of the time, with facimile labels

So Ms. Morgan appears to be basically right saying

It saddens me how clunky that bridge looks.  :(

Because every day, thousands of violins go without repair. But, for just 25¢ per day, you can help me make more of them.
