█►stunning Antique Violin Brescia Inlay 1 Piece Back 4/4 Bow & Case Vtg N/r ◄█


Antique violin with beautiful Brescian geometric inlay on 1-piece back. With bow and case. Sold as found. Maker unknown.
Stunning antique violin. Price,....please don't miss this sale.

VG+ shape or better. Violin measures 23" long. Whatever it finishes at, it will sell for. offer or bookmark now.

Fresh find. This comes from the estate of a local gentleman who passed away. His widow told me that this was one of his prized musical instruments. Violins, are far from my expertise as I am a percussionist. But the inlay and 1 piece back instantly caught my attention. I will let the photos tell the story. Please scroll down. (I have exhausted myself photographing this instrument) If you have any specific questions, please ask.

The first question would be is there a makers mark or paper tag inside. There is not. I was hoping that the paper tag fell off and was floating inside, but there is none when I checked. This violin falls directly under the highly decorated types such as the Brescia and German works of earlier centuries. I'm not positive of this instruments origin, but it's certainly an oldie in person.

The inlay work appears to be true marquetry. For instance, the tiger grain is consistently interrupted by the geometric designs under close inspection. It also appears to incorporate different wood which gives a nice "painted effect". This is a very old violin. I'm almost at a loss to put a date on it.

Details to note when viewing the photos; The top has one notable split trailing from the right soundhole. There is a second and minor split trailing off the other soundhole. I have given very detailed high resolution closeups below.

I wanted to capture as much detail as I could so I shot the photos outdoors in bright sunlight. The combination of the bright lighting and my Canon camera tended to overdo (saturate) the color contrast. I noted one photo below that best represented its true color in person. It's more brown than reddish.

It appears to be missing no parts at all. It was an instrument that was played up until recently. Chin piece is marked Czechoslovakia as is parts of the bow. The bow is in fine shape with good hair. Neck and finger board look outstanding. Bridge and tailpiece also look good with no splits.

Case is in good solid shape. No key. I have a very low opening offer and . Follow your bliss.

C'mon you know you want it! WYSWYG - What You See Is What You Get. Condition is VG+ or better. Small marks and and general wear and tear which testifies to its age and vintage. Please examine photos and ask any questions.
