...A BEAUTIFUL, HAND-MADE violin is a wonderful example of the work of
late 19th century American violin-making...a fine
example of the luthier's craftsmanship.

and likely the violin is an original design of the maker's.

powerful, rich, velvetyvoice of this violin speaks for
itself. As usual, I have included a video sound
sample so that you can judge it for is a gorgeous violin.....powerful and resonant with
deep, growling, bass tones & soaring trebles. I am very
impressed with the rich, lush, powerful sound. Its
perfectfor a any advanced violinist or soloist.
is a strong violin with a powerful voice...likely due
to the maker's high-arched design. It has a wonderful,
mature sound...deep bass tones, full of resonance...
and clear, singing treble tones...a nice old,
mellow sounding instrument. CONDITION: This violin is innice, fully restored condition.There are no

solid(anon-structural area). The violin originally had machine
pegs which were popular in the late 1800s, but havebeen
