Yes, yes, I know they are just German factory instruments, or Czechoslovakian factory instruments, but I just think they are beautiful. The one that I owned was a Gagliano copy and it was the spitting image of this instrument, and it sounded fantastic and when I bought it it even had the original bridge. There’s a lovely instrument here, and somebody is going to enjoy it.

Being such a Juzek aficionado, perhaps you can tell us which Gagliano they supposedly copied? It bears little resemblance to the Gaglianos I have seen.

As you know I am not an aficionado at all, but I can read labels, and the label identifies it as a Gagliano copy. Jay and I had a big laugh about that, because he pointed out that there was not a thing about it that was in common with a Gagliano

They probably copied a Dutzendarbeit bearing a fake Gagliano label and with stripped varnish. Convincingly.:)

More likely they just took another Dutzendarbeit from the line, and put in that label. :)

Didn't want it to say so directly. It could be Phillip's.;)

Of course the label looks a bit dodgy and the body looks more like from the late 19th than 1920. Big questionmark if the scroll belongs.

There appear more Juzek aficionados and amateur enthusiasts than you and me alone, respectively....

BTW, several EH Roths were also sold in T2 auction today if interested.

The damage report on this violin was extensive. I wouldn’t touch it with a ten foot pole. I understand the interest, but not after finding out what’s wrong with it.

All those bidders had that damage report. Evidently, they were much more enthusiastic than we were!

EBay has a lot of great finds, too, especially for specialty items, and a lot of the sellers nowadays have brick-and-mortar shops as well.  I found excellent quality bricks and mortars with no problem:

:lol:

The point is, you can find all manner of hard-to-find stuff from all over the world on eBay, and drive no farther than your local post office, to pick it up.  :)

Everybody needs a couple of Mortars in the front yard. Never know when the gators in the moat will let you down!
