Attractive Bohemian / Czech violin, approx. 1920

This very attractive old Czech violin features a bright, clear sound and an attractive visual appearance, that is determined by the bright character of its antiqued orange-brown varnish. It was built approx. 1920 by an unknown Czech violin maker. The resonant, bright voice of this violin demonstrates its preferable sound properties, with a bright, ringing tone, that is clear and well-balanced throughout. The scroll has a certain character, and the very deeply flamed maple of the one-piece back indicate the good craftsmanship of this good quality old Czech violin, that was completely worked over by our experienced luthiers, who made it ready to play.
