Attractive old Czech violin, a beautiful Stradivarius model

This good quality mid/end 20th century Czech violin has a beautiful warm and mature, resonant sound - it was handcrafted in the mid/end 20th century and most likely comes from one of the renowned smaller violin manufacturers or workshops of the Saxon-Bohemian "Musikwinkel" around Schönbach in the Czech Republic. It is preserved undamaged and crackfree, with minor traces from playing only. The beautifully antiqued and luminous golden-brown varnish with its slight patina and some traces from playing determines this good Czech violin´s attractive ue appearance, along with the selection of beautifully grained spruce for the top and mildly flamed maple for the two piece back, decorated Czech 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.
