Violin for id


wooden

Recommended Posts

Hello. I have this violin for identification. Can anyone help?. It is big 362mm. But the ribs are very narrow (from 27mm tapering to 25 at the heel). The purfling is painted and I think the original reddish varnish has been removed almost completely. The fluting of the scroll stops slightly before the pegbox. The lower rib is one piece. I'd appreciate any information which can lead to any date, school... Thanks in advance.

Model and scroll both look a bit odd for Vogtland in my eyes, also the particular golden-orange varnish; otherwise I agree with Jacob that it can be difficult to tell them apart.

Thanks! I can see how the scroll and model look a bit unusual. Are the painted purflings part of the equation? I can't remember having seen a Vogtland violin with painted purflings

There are Vogtlandish violins with painted purfling, more as exceptions for cheaper models, while in the Salzkammergut it was the standard.
