History Of This Violin?

Recommended Posts

I took this old violin on trade and it only had 1 peg, no tailpiece, chinrest, nut, strings or bridge. The top had 5 cracks. I took the top off in 3 pieces and inside the violin the were markings in pencil as follows: AMATI.  Logo kinda shaped like a football with the laces showing and another oblong circle around that. CREMONA 16. ARAD   and there was also part of a paper tag with the logo and Michael Treschler ARAD on it.

I think it's safe to say that this Tischler had nothing more to do with the violin than making a paper label and carving his name very inelegantly into the back.

It  appears that it may have been stripped. What does that tell you about the information in pencil?

A case is mounting that Mr Tischler is not good thing happening to violins.

Or that it's a bad idea to write your name into violins if you don't want to be hold responsible for every vandalism.:)

Yes I have always said that the propensity to write a repair inscription, is inversely proportionate to the quality/advisedness of the “repair” work
