The Mesquite widow claims in court papers that Dallas Symphony Orchestra violinist Filip Fenrych and his wife preyed on her grief last spring when they persuaded her to sell a rare Scarampella violin.

Moore says the instrument is worth at least $90,000. Her husband, Ronald Hudson, was a violin collector and co-concertmaster for the symphony. The instrument was part of his collection. He died in July.

A piece of paper says it’s worth $90,000 as of a certain date. Someone offers $47,000 and the widow sells it, then cries foul.

Don’t see it as fraud on the purchaser’s part.

I guess if I owned a rare violin, I would want someone to have it who would play it and not just put it in a museum. That has to be worth at least ten thousand. They probably paid wholesale. If she had auctioned it, she would have gotten two thirds of the value received. Even if it had hit $90K then her take would have been $60K. Split the difference and call it done.

So a guy from Dallas rips of a widow from Dallas. Isn’t W from Dallas? It would appear this is W’s fault.

As I recall, the parties had agreed to a price if the authenticity could be documented. She couldn’t come up with the paperwork, so they got it for a lower price. AFTER the sale, she comes up with some paperwork, and wants more money. They tell her that the deal is done.

No, that was Roy Campanella, but Stradivarius was a hell of a pitcher.

Good advice. One may be impaled by the bow.
