Standard German trade/factory violin - circa 1900 ?


Recommended Posts

Mitred rib joints, cleated bottom seam, one piece belly, scroll with short and narrow throat, a particular brown glossy varnish point to Mirecourt work, probably early factory work before 1900.

Cheap and nasty is more a description of the way these were produced, the instrument itself isn’t that ugly in my eyes. I has nicely figured wood, varnish isn’t ugly neither and the general condition ok. Which work would be necessary is not finally to decide by the photos, maybe a neck reset, but in general it should be worth it.

Violin Mirecourt probably early factory work before 1900 - maybe it won't be a crime :-) . Thanks.
