J.R.Carlisle violin. Would like to sell. I have no idea of what to ask . Came in a deteriorated alligator case with a bow made by Saxony which I could not date.
Pictures show the makers trademark thumb print inside fiddle. Also have a letter by J R Carlisle addressed to the original buyer of the fiddle in TN. I have researched somewhat and that is why I have no idea about price. Thought maybe someone here could help me.
7 - 2 - 18
Thanks for the many of you that have shared information. I have learned that only 75 hand built violins bear the J R Carlisle thumb print and these were made in the later years of his career. This fiddle has either ( mo 1244-A ) or (no 1244-A ) below his signature and thumb print . Don't know if it is a date or model no. I'm still digging, Im just slow. Thanks again for the many of you that have sent info.
