Old Czech violin of quality, around 1940
From the hands of a skilled violin maker comes this Czech violin, manufactured with much attention to the detail around 1940 following Stradivari patterns, as indicated by the label. The unknown luthier chose exceptionally good tonewoods, very regular spruce for the top and narrowly flamed maple for the back. The accurate, fine purfling and the small, elegant soundholes bear witness to the high precision of his work. The milky yellow varnish with natural patina has remains of antiquing made with red oil varnish on the back. A quality instrument with an attractive sound, light but also warm, strong and resonant. It was carefully worked over by our luthier and is offered ready to play.
Length of back: 35.5 cm
Year: 1940 circa
