Offered here is a sturdy Italian? 4/4 Violin from 1850 (in my opinion because the back mesures a perfect 14 inches and the back of the scroll is warn) The violin bears no label. This violin has beautiful flamed tiger maple on the ribs and back.This violin has no real problems at all meaning NO CRACKS on the table or back. There is a repaired and holding crack on the right shoulder rib, see picture!
There is some splicing under the finger board that was a professional job. There are the usual scuffs and scrapes to the varnish one would expect from a violin this age.
The sound can't be judged as the sound-post is down. I imagine with wood like this that it will be stellar. The wood is fine grain spruce on the table (top) and fantastic flamed maple on the ribs, back, neck. What you see is what you get.
