Is this Juzek a Master Art?


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I recently purchased this violin to help a widow in need of funds. I initially passed on it due to a low neck angle and some other issues but long story short I own it now. From what I can find on internet searches the master arts should have red labels, ebony heels etc? When I looked at the violin I assumed the label may have been added later since it lacked those features. Now I am faced with some expensive repairs to bring it back to playing condition. I wanted to ask if it could be some level of Master Art and if so what would its value be in playing condition?

No, it is not. It lacks both the features and the quality of an authentic Juzek Master Art brand violin. The label is fake. Sorry.

One can hardly help philosophising, to what extent any Schönbach box, with an American, Metropolitan Music slip of paper inside, could be “authentic” Jusek:)

I specifically said "brand." 

There are, for example, authentic Gucci-brand purses and counterfeit Gucci-brand purses that look virtually identical. The authentic Gucci-brand purses are expensive and the counterfeit Gucci-brand purses are not, but you can be certain that Guccio Gucci had nothing to do with the sewing of either.

Thanks for the info, I suspected it was not as it is labeled to be.

The violin may be a good player, once set up and repaired. Did it come with a bow?

Sadly no bow. It was setup very poorly when I got it, and even then it had a nice sound to it.
