I like the old-fashioned format for violins like this; s, no
buy it now. The highest buyer wins it. This is a fantastic opportunity
to have a vintage, hand-made Violin . It is an antique item; sold as is,
as it was found. No Returns. These estate items are being sold without
certification or authentication and are, therefore sold without a
reserve and like most old violins may require adjustment, setup,

two years and will be posting more each week. If the instrument/
