Interesting? violin ID

Recommended Posts

LOB is 356mm, edges are very thin, scroll is grafted, corner blocks are symetrical so I think BOB? flutings on pegbox are quite shallow.

Could it be something more interesting or another german?How old it could be? on treble side c-bout rib is scratched to varnish year 1859.

sorry for quality of photos but it is dark here nw, I can take better photos tomorrow if needed.

Thanks

The notch in the backplate under the endpin is a give away for the built on the back construction, and here we are seeing rib corners allowing to pick up the violin with two fingers.:) Otherwise a nicely made and obviously well preserved Vogtland, the 1850 date seems to be believable.

Why Voghtland and not Mittenwald?

Or is that dejavu!

Vogtland built on the back, notch in the bottom, and Mittenwald inside mould notch in the (one piece) rib.

I love those three (original?) pegs! never seen that shape before!

I don't like them:). I wonder if they weren't originally from some gamba or lute
