Initials on buton

Recommended Posts

Does someone recognise this particular Monogram as makers one? Or it is owner's? First letter is M but 2nd? It does not look as German Kurrent , violin came for Denmark - maybe Danish Kurrent S ? Any ideas?PHOTO-2020-03-10-19-38-31.thumb.jpg.33a904eef981ae80a9cee6ff543d3165.jpg

If you follow the identification sticky thread about instrument photography, we'd be able to tell you more about the fiddle.

Well I actually asked about monogram, because I strongly suspect MK/Sh, if you look on purfling. But ok - I have some photos of violin, but no inside, because it is not mine and I have no access. Please be so kind and tell me what you can tell about it, maybe it will be something more interesting than I suspect...

Very nice! Too good to be from Schoenbach. I would be looking to France as a possible origin. I can't help out with the stamp, though.

I was thinking French too. The esgework looks French to me.

What is that for an argument, pathetic. It will come from the Markneukirchen area.

I would read the initials as MJ and nicht MS

Just to confirm the former opinions, everything - scroll, edgework and purfling, varnish, wood choice, corners - is nothing but Markneukirchen/Schönbach from the very early 20th century in my eyes. Saying too good or too nice to be xxy seems to confirm that a person is just guessing (nothing wrong with that, but insignificant for identification).

The letters look handscratched, so probably an owners mark.

How can it be anything other than Schoenbach?
