Restored Czech master violin with a "Dalla Costa" label, approx. 1880

This good sounding but heavily restored Czech master violin with a "Dalla Costa" label is a product of finest Czechoslovakian craftsman tradition. Made in the late 19th century, the expressive model refers to the grand Italian violin making tradition, made with elegant arch and flutings. The top is made of fine to medium grained spruce, the two piece back of maple with mild grain. The delicate carving of the small scroll is of excellent quality. The attractive and highly transparent violin varnish is of a golden-brown color, richly applied and with wear and patination. We have decided ton include this Czech master violin that has an area of repaired worm damage on top in our catalogue for its good sound - and at a particularly low price due to worm restoration which apparently has no impact on the violins powerful, warm sound or playing qualities. Thus, this master violin is especially attractive for limited budgeted players seeking a top quality colorful sound.
