What do you think of this violin?


Recommended Posts

I can't answer for its age or geographical origin, but I would very much doubt that someone who can make such a mess of the purfling corners could also produce such a professional scroll.

So the neck is either a bought-in job for an amateur who didn't fancy making a neck, or a later replacement.

One thing we can say with certainty is that no part of this violin relates to Carlo Tononi.

On balance I would say it's the work of an educated but not very skilled amateur. The bits that don't need expertise - the choice and layout of wood and the varnish - are very nice.

Supposed to be from the late 1700’s.  Let me know, thanks.

Supposed to be Italian, do you think it is or German?

Welcome to MN.

How does it sound when you play it?  :)

It was for sale so I didn’t play it.  It sold for over $3,000

Are you the seller?   If so, playing it and posting a video in your ad seldom hurts, unless it sounds bloody awful.  :lol:

Yup.  That's a match.  Good catch, thanks.  :)
