Abner Hucklebee Posted September 12, 2022 Report Share Posted September 12, 2022 I have a violin that was evaluated by a local dealer. They said it was an early 20th century Mirecourt. There is no label and the dealer could not determine the maker. They said that I should easily be able to sell the violin for $3,500-4000, once it is in working order - needs tail piece, bridge, strings, and set up, and maybe some glueing at top, back, and sides, but no separation was visible to me. I'm not very knowledgeable about violin valuation, but after doing research have become concerned that this violin has very little value. It has a neck graft, with a German scroll to replace the original, the neck is not centered to the body, the back is one piece but has a fairly sizable wing, and there's a sliver of grain missing from the edge of one of the f holes. I realize it's impossible to appraise a violin without seeing it in person, but can anyone comment on how the above listed issues would affect the value of an early 20th century Mirecourt violin by unknown maker? Am I correct in doubting that this violin is worth anything close to $3,500? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
