Vintage Czech Concert Violin By Ladislav F. Prokop + Bow Stamped "lupot" For Sale
Old Bohemian violin labeled (see the last photo)
Ladislav F. Prokop,
hotovitel hudebních nástrojů
with a bow stamped "LUPOT" in an original
The instrument is a high grade (concert level) 'Prokop' violin, built sometime between 1925-1935. (The exact year of manufacture was unfortunately scratched off of the label in the past. I don't know who did it and why.) For this type of instruments, L.F. Prokop used carefully selected wood - evenly structured spruce for the top plate & densely flamed maple for the two-piece back plate. Also the craftsmanship is on a rather high level.
The violin is in a very good condition overall. There are two professionally repaired small cracks in the bass half of top plate (see the relevant pictures): the first one is a ~5mm spot crack left from the fingerboard (when facing the top), another one is a ~15mm hairline crack under the bass sound hole. No severe cracks or open cracks. Apart from that, just some usual signs of wear - several scratches (mostly on the top), again nothing serious. The instrument was recently checked by a professional luthier and was equipped with new quality rosewood fittings.
The violin is ready to play. It has
a mellow, brilliant tone and an excellent projection.
length of the back: 358mm
total length: 591mm
The bow needs new hair and wire wrapping, but other than that, it's in a very good condition too, with the stick itself being healthy, straight and firm. If you have any questions, I’ll be
