Old Czech violin after Niccolo Amati, c.1900

This attractive and very lightweight antique Bohemian-Czech violin was built in the 1900's after a Niccolo Amati model, which is expressed in the unmistakable elegant pattern and the soundholes shaped in the Niccolo Amati style, the violin bears an Amati model labek. The flat to medium arching of the instrument was thoroughly handcrafted by an experienced hand in a good workshop of Western Bohemia. The highly antiqued varnish is playing with different, dark to red brown colors and decorates the mild flames of the one-piece back and the irregular medium grained spruce of the top, determining the enigmatic antique appearance of the violin. We offer this good sounding Czech violin in excellent and immediate playing condition, completely worked over by our professional luthiers, as all of our instruments. Its powerful, radiant and mature sound is highly recommendable.
