 This antique and very attractive master violin, a xopy of J. F. Pressenda, is a product of best Czechoslovakian craftsman tradition. Made in the late 19th century around 1880, the expressive model refers to the grand Italian violin making tradition, made with elegant arch and flutings. The top is made of medium grained spruce, the two piece back of maple with mild grain. The bold carving of the scroll may indicate a later addition of the scroll, which is grafted to the pegbox. The attractive and highly transparent violin varnish is of a golden-orange-brown color, richly applied and with wear and patination.
