Antique Violin Labeled "javitotta: Orvos Andras 1920" + Bow Stamped "tow ***" For Sale
90-120 years old violin, probably Hungarian, with a hand-written label that reads "Javitotta: | Orvos Andras | 1920" - see the photo of the label (I am not sure about the correct spelling of the family name: "Orvos"?).
The instrument comes with an old octagonal bow stamped"Tow***" (again, not sure about the spelling) and a period case (in a decent condition).
The violin is in a very good condition. There is one repaired ~2cm hairline crack in the top plate near the saddle. I don't see any other cracks; there is certainly no severe crack. Usual signs of wear. The violin seems to have been refinished in the past. All the fittings are in a good condition too; the bridge looks rather recent and is nicely fitted.
The violin is ready to play. It has
a wonderful tone: dark & intense, with rich overtones.
- length of the back: 357mm
- total length: 594mm
The bow needs new face plate and hair. Other than that, it's in a good condition too, and the stick itself is healthy and firm.
