Stamp inside the back

Recommended Posts

I have a viola without  label  which has a stamp inside the back.

The attached photo shows the stamp.

Does anyone know something about the stamp and maker?

LOB = 420 mm

I bought from a person in Canada some 10 years ago, but I lost the receipt.

Pictures of bridge are uploaded. However the stamp on the bridge is hard to read.

Because it's a relative modern viola it could be made everywhere, but with the extended and extremely deeply fluted f wings, high edges and distinctive scroll it reminds me mostly of the Czech style from the 1930s on. Without the stamp I would say a Forberger, but there were also many others working this way.

You could search a bit here: https://paganini.cz/en/violins/violins---after-1920/

I'm sorry he was in Canada then.

I know I've seen that brand inquired about on MN before, and identified, unfortunately, I don't remember what the answer was.

But, I expect that somebody else does, and knows exactly what it is.  Please speak up.  :)

Thank you very much. I will consult with that site.
