Hollohaza porcelain violin by Hungarian artist Szasz Endre

I found this Hollohaza porcelain violin by the famous Hungarian artist Szasz Endre a couple of months ago on eBay. It had a reserve on it, and the highest bid was around $400 but the reserve was not met.

Now it is back up for sale, but NO reserve, and now it is at $200:

It will sell for sure, how high should I bid?

It seems that it is at least worth $400, since that was the last high bid in the first auction, do you think it is worth more than that?

You posted this same message on September 17 of this year. I suspect you are trying to sell the item. This is not a buy and sell forum.

Do you want it? Why? to re-sell or because you just love, love the piece?
There are several references to a hollohaza violin...but I suspect they all refer to this one.
If you love it and have to have it...buy it for what you can afford...but if you think you will make money on it, I fear you are sadly mistaken.

The violin pictured is improperly strung and can not be played. Look up near the end of the neck and you will see that the strings are out of place. Something is amiss unless this is a decorative piece only, but then for $100 or so, I'd expect to see a better representaion.

Hehehehe Jem! You made me laugh.

I think it's a cello for a rabbit--no chin rest but quite an endpin!
