Old Violin W/ Grafted Scroll Labeled Johannes Cuypers 1766. Restoration Project For Sale
23 1/4" long, 14 1/8" back. The label reads:Johannes Cuypers Fecit's Hage A 1766
There are dings, chips, and scratches. The finish is mottled and appears to have been amatuerishly applied somewhere along the line. There are a number of repaired splits. Looking inside with one of those dental mirrors, I see cleats. There's an ebony collar on the heel, all the tuning pegs match, and comes with a tailpiece that needs a cord. The soundpost is standing, but looks like it needs to be reset. Comes with the wooden case the instrument was found in, along with a bow stamped C.A. Hoyer. A small piece of bone is missing from the very end of the tip.$35 S&H fully insured via UPS Ground in the continental U.S. If this turns out to be an overcharge, I'll refund the difference. Please ask any questions prior to 24 hrs. of end-of-offer time.
