Nicolas Lupot label French Violin.. tell me more

Recommended Posts

I came across this violin today and I was wondering what the experts have to share about it. 

It has a Nicolas Lupot label so I’m guessing it’s at least French made?  The violin doesn’t seem to resemble any of the Lupot’s on Tarisio. 

There’s also a bow with a stamp though I can’t make out the name.  

The setup could use some work but I had a blast playing it in the antique store. Nice focused sound.

The price they were asking seemed unreasonably high.  How much would you expect to pay for it?

Built on Back. Looks like a Markneukirchen violin from around 1880 - 1920. But I don't know much.

Pictures as per   

                  would help.

I thought  French and  built around a mold.

Looks like rib ends are not mitered.

Ends have been clamped and are flush with the corners.

There are different ways to do a graft. Maybe the way this scroll was grafted gives a clue as to who did it.

and no, I’m not suggesting it means anything about age. But different places may have done grafts in different ways. And the peg holes aren’t bushed anyway.

Should we go for the  1920s date ?

They are much better corners than the usual BOB that we see here  on late 1900s Marknirkirchen violins.

The absense of peghole bushes could be because the violin came out of the factory with a graft to make it look antique. Sometimes they did a graft and peghole bushings depending on the model and price.

Yes I know that about the graft. I was referring to the scroll graft as distinctive enough that it might indicate where it was made, not when. The lack of peg hole bushings means it’s probably not that old, but you indicate that somethings they were bushed at the factory too, which I did not know. Thanks.
