Scottish (eaglesham) 4/4 Violin 1886 Exc Cond G. Mellon - Nr For Sale
For your consideration - a wonderful 4/4 handmade violin by Scottish Violin Maker George Mellon of Eaglesham. This instrument is noted as No. 7, dated 1886 and was purchased a number of years ago in the UK at a small estate sale. It had been stored away in the attic of a house owned by a descendent of the maker. The violin measures ~ 23.5 inches in length. The body of the violin measures 14" in length. The upper bouts are 6 5/8" across and the lower bouts measure 8 1/8 inches. Condition: The violin is in pristine condition. It was cleaned, lightly polished and received a complete new set up (sound post, bridge and strings) from a prestigious violin maker in Virginia (name available to the winning buyer). There are no cracks or separations. The varnish is in excellent condition as is the overall condition of the instrument. This is a beautiful violin with a very pleasant sound. I unconditionally guarantee its authenticity. There is no bow with this violin but it does include a quality chin rest (not pictured) and an old but serviceable case. A return will be accepted if this item is not as pictured and/or described. Please contact me with your questions, I will answer promptly. More pictures available. Buyer to pay only actual shipping charges.
