Attractive antique Czech violin. 19th century

This antique, 19th century Czech violin has a beautiful clear and mature, resonant sound - it was handcrafted most likely in one of the renowned smaller violin manufacturers or workshops of the Saxon-Bohemian "Musikwinkel" around Schönbach in the Czech Republic. The violin is preserved undamaged and crackfree, with minor traces from playing only. The beautifully antiqued and luminous golden-red-brown varnish with its patina and some traces from playing determines this good Czech violin´s attractive appearance, along with the selection of beautifully grained spruce for the top and broadly flamed maple for the two piece back. This highly arched antique Czech violin that has been fully set up and is ready to play and features a well balanced, radiant, mature, resonant sound with some sweet notes in the upper ranges, which is gerenally balanced and of good strength.
