Original Ernst Heinrich Roth
violin - vintage 1923. This violin came from the estate
of the original owner. I took the violin
to Elderly Instruments in Lansing,
Michigan to have their violin
specialist, Brian Bishop, give me an evaluation of condition. He confirmed that this was a correct 1923 Ernst
Heinrich Roth violin. He said that the
structural condition was excellent and appeared to have retained its original
finish. He also said that Elderly
Instruments recently sold a near identical 1923 Roth Stradivarius model for
$6500.00. He stated that my violin was
probably the nicer violin of the two.
I later took the violin to Wilson Fine
Violins in Birmingham, Michigan to have them perform the minor repair
needed. They repaired a 2 inch hairline
crack, put new strings, bridge, tailpiece and tuner and set it up to play at a
cost of $335.00 (receipt included). They
concurred with the Elderly Instrument evaluation in that it is an original
finish and undamaged 1923 Roth violin. Upon
close inspection Rob Wilson felt that the interior surface of the top of the
violin had a fine coat of varnish which is a common practice among violin
makers. They agreed that $6500.00 would
be a price that they would be comfortable with for consignment.
The interior of the violin is correctly
marked with its makers label “Ernst Heinrich Roth – Markneukirchen 1923” “Reproduction of Antonius Stradivarius, Cremona 1724”. It also has the makers logo branded on the
interior back plus a additional paper label that is marked “Sole Agents, Simson
& Frey (Inc), New York, USA” (see photos).
is sold with its ebony tuning pegs, ebony tailpiece, ebony chin rest and
original leather hard shell case.
buyer pays $50.00 shipping & insurance within lower 48 states.

To answer a few questions ... 1) There is a correct "Ernst Heinrich Roth - Markneukirchen" oval stamp on the interior back just above the label. 2) The length of the body is 14.25 inches. 3) The repaired hairline crack is notvisiblein the photos because it is on the center seam and directly under the tailpiece. Thanks!

Q. Is there a model number under the Roth stamped logo?A. I do not see a model number under the branded stamp. The Roth label is just under the stamp. Possibly a model number is covered by the label?
