I'm no expert at identification but I've just come from an auction house in the UK where there are always dozens of similarly sorry specimens on offer. Somebody always seems to buy them but I seriously wonder who'd want to play one.

Something that is usually referred on this forum as "bohemian fiddle", although it is actually a German

Schönbach was in the Kingdom of Bohemia, even if its inhabitants were Sudetendeutsch, so I suppose one could have a futile argument

I was not so much referring to the nationality of the Schönbach inhabitants as to the style and origin of construction of Schönbach violins. After all, who can say for sure that this violin is from Schönbach and not from Klingenthal?
