Old Czech violin full of character, made in the Italian style, c.1900

This beautiful old Czech violin, a turn of the century piece, blends its unmistakably Bohemian heritage with charming highlights of the Italian style. A Carl Stöffner label inside is of no rellevance. In particular, the woods, edgework and soundholes closely resembles its Italian templates. With its beautifully carved, bold scroll and refined red-brown varnish, this instrument is a elegant personality with a broad range of sound nuances. Warm and matured in its lower registers, its balanced sound of medium power gains clarity, brightness and sweetness in the upper registers. This recommendable old Czech violin has no cracks or repairs, and after having been worked over by our violin maker, we offer it to you in perfect condition.
