Speculative, Restorable & Trade
Tarisio’s SRT Auctions handle instruments and bows that are in need of work, have uncertain attributions or are from a trade workshop. They have attractive estimates and many carry no reserve price.
Recent sales have included a Vuillaume violin broken into many pieces, damaged Sartory violin bows, 18th-century northern Italian violins with multiple cracks, and many German and French trade instruments needing set-ups.
The SRT Auctions are held in February, June, August and December each year, with viewings in New York. A full catalog is available online before each sale. As for all Tarisio sales, bidding takes place online.
