Interesting master violin from Bohemia, approx. 1880

This unusual antique violin is a very interesting master instrument, that was built approx. 1880, most probably in Bohemia. An interesting brandstamp inside with a lion symbol and some letters is unknown to us. A rare and distinctive feature is the rounded model with slim c bouts and the beautiful arching that is ascending to the middle of top and back. The top was made of well-chosen mdeium to wide grained spruce and features mysterious aesthetics under the rich, highly patinated oil varnish. Self-confident craftsmanship of character are visible at the one-piece back and at the elegant scroll, that is the work of an experienced hand. Playfully elegant soundholes determine the individual character of the instrument. Our professional luthiers worked over the crackfree and undamaged violin meticulously and set it up expertly, it is now ready to play. Its sound is as enigmatic as its looks - the true sound of a master violin, large, mature and precise, clear and with excellent power.
