I have a question regarding use and history of edging, purfling, piping or binding of the violin scroll edges. I once saw a picture of a scroll that was edged in black. Who are the makers that use such a technique? When was it started? Is it the sign of a certain school ie; Cremonese etc. I found one maker who did it from the 1880's, H.H. Heskett.
What other makers, contemporary and otherwise, use/used this adornment. Has anyone seen this "in person" on a violin?
