In Reply to: Joseph Guarnerius Violin posted by Cindy A. O'Donnell on January 27, 2003 at 20:11:06:
I just read your post (7 month later..). I bought a violin exactly like this one in 1973 in Montréal (Canada). The specialist I have consulted this week for insurance evaluation purpose told me that it was made in Germany around 1910 as a reproduction of violin done by Josep Guarnerius. Mine is in good condition (I was playing it for years and it sound great). It was not a surprise to me that the violin would be german since, went I bougth it with my violin teacher, it was mentioned that it was originally owned by a old german professor.
(sorry for the english...I am not an anglophone)
: My friend found a violin marked: Joseph Guarnerius Fecit Cremonae Anno 1714 IHS with the cross. It is in a case and was found in the attic of an old home in Louisiana. All of the label is in ink except the "14" which is in pencil. The Federation does not list any members in Louisiana. Is anyone familiar with this particual "Joseph" of 1714. Thanks, Cindy
