Attractive old violin from Saxony-Bohemia, 1940's

This good quality early-mid 20th century violin has a beautiful warm and sweet, resonant sound - it was handcrafted in the 1940's and most likely comes from one of the renowned smaller violin manufacturers or workshops of the Saxon-Bohemian "Musikwinkel" around Markneukirchen in Germany and Schönbach in the Czech Republic. It is preserved undamaged and crackfree, with minor traces from playing only and a small dent on top, which can be seen as a black dot on the photo. The shining and luminous red-orange varnish was richly applied and with its slight patina and traces from playing determines this good old handcrafted violin´s attractive appearance, along with the selection of beautifully grained spruce for the top and mildly flamed maple for the one piece back, decorated by the fine corners and purfling. This beautifully red violin catches the eye - a good old Saxon-Bohemian violin that has been fully set up and is ready to play and features a well balanced, warm, mature, resonant sound with some sweet notes in the upper ranges, which is gerenally balanced and of good strength.
