Speaking of animals, what would you call that mythical looking beast on the label?

The Beast of Gevaudan?

Your violin is a common or garden “Dutzendarbeit” (Trade violin) from the late 19th C. I illustrated a proper Alban Graz d’amore last year here

so that one may see that the word “replica” or “counterfeit” are risable.

I’m sorry but your violin is neither a counterfeit nor a replica. The label has nothing to do with the violin ... it’s just a random fake label.

Why did you have to say sorry? :lol:

Yup, seems like a dodgy fake label.

Haha, well in fact I do have a human baby.

So let's see what I think  I know -  is this fiddle 1840's or slightly earlier

Interesting to see guesses. Why do you think 1840's or earlier? The photos don't help me too much, however I'm still on the learning curve.

Ooh, that's a fun slice of history.. so not really mythical as much as exaggerated.

...reminds me of my cat...:ph34r:

Mine too. He doesn't really mean to kill me, he just gets a bit over-enthusiastically playful at times. :D
