Good antique Czech/Bohemian violin

This old violin was handmade around 1900 in the region now sometimes called "Musicon Valley," i.e. the Schönbach-Markneukirchen-Klingenthal "Musikwinkel" on the Czech-German border. This instruments is a good quality historic piece that was hand-crafted well; its quality and sound place it far beyond compare with other, newer (usually of Chinese origin) instruments in its price range. The transparent yet intense golden-brown varnish with almost no signs from use suggest that the violin has been very well taken care of. The instrument has been kept in very good undamaged condition and has been professionally worked over adjusted by our luthiesr - we offer it in ready to play condition. The violin's balanced and orchestral sound is warm, sweet and somewhat mellow.
