Footnotes

  • The above Violin is stylistically and dendrchronologically very similar to the ex-Cooper 1816 Lupot Violin presently on view in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.
    See; Musical Instruments in the Ashmolean Collection, The Complete Collection, OMIP 2011, Edited by John Milnes, pages 182-189.

    See also The Galpin Society Journal, LV April 2002 page 261 no. 30 for synopsis of John Topham Dendrochronology Report of the Ashmolean Lupot.

    The 9 February 2013 Tree-Ring Analysis Report no B27 of John Topham relating to the violin presently offered states inter alia;

    "In addition the mean sequence very significantly cross-matches two sequences taken from a violin also labelled and attributed to Nicolas Lupot also dated 1816. The instrument resides at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford and is part of the Hill Collection. The mean sequence cross-matches on the bass side of the Lupot labelled violin (dated from AD1715 to AD1794) with a t-value of 16.2 and the treble side (dated from AD1714 to AD1793)with a t-value of 16.4. These values and the graphical similarities as shown in Graph 3 strongly suggest the wood from both violins came from the same tree."

    Offered with the black and white illustrated Gutachten of Eugen Tenucci, Zurich signed and dated 12 August 1950 stating the above is; fachmannischen Erfahrung eine Arbeit dieses Meisters along with a similar Gutachten from Georg Winterling, Hamburg signed and dated 1 Juli 1950 also stating; ist eine Arbeit dieses Meisters.(2).
