Very Good Antique American Massachusetts Violin-no Reserve For Sale

Very Good Antique American Massachusetts Violin-no Reserve


I am pleased to be able to offer this very good antique American violin to the highest J. Volenec was a leading makerof the Pioneer Valley school of Western Massachusetts. His output was prolific,and in his day,the violins hemade competed in the same market as those of Andrew Hyde, Oscar Clark, Milton Wickes, RaoulRicard and Frank C. Ball. Many of Volenec's violins wound up in the hands of professional violinists and collectors because of their powerful and energetic tone and superior craftsmanship.They were quite expensive when new and sought after by professionals and soloists.This particular violin might be one of the best examples of his work to be found.

The violin bears the handwritten inscription of the maker and is guaranteed to be authentic and violin is rustic in appearance and detail with a heavy handed oil varnish yet artistic workmanship and materialsfrom the beautifully worked scroll to the boldly figuredwoods. Detail such as the gracefullycarved ffs, refined edgework and expressive corners, the bold and artistic scroll,the thickly textured oil varnish, and original model reinforce the clear impression of hand-madequality.

The violin is in nearly flawless condition with only a few minor scratches and nicks making it any less than perfect. Perhaps the most severe wear is some minor scuffing of the edges from use. It is really hard to find a genuine antique violin inthis pristine condition. Please look at the detailed photos carefully. They confirm everything I claim.


The tone of this violin lives up to the expectationspromised by its appearance.It has a very lively, high energy sound that is wonderfully resonant and sophisticated. This is a warm tone with profound, richly ringing overtones. It has a clear and well-focused power but none of thestrident shrillness of raw, newer instruments. It isa rounded and rich, soulful, singing quality that is a real treat.The violin has superior response and excellent dynamics. It can be played softly and sweetly with a feather light bow and instantly transform into a tiger with a dominant and penetrating sound that can be heard easily in even larger venues.If you dislike a boomy andhollow tone, and want a fresh andfull-bodied soundthat ispure and powerful, this one is a winner. This is a very exciting and energizing violin to play that will give even the seasoned expert much to explore and layers of colors andtextures to uncover. The violin is ready for immediate performance.

























This is a wonderful opportunity to buy a real, handmade antique American violin that is as good as the day it was made. American violins is where the appreciation is taking place as dealers, players and collectors are realizing the original quality produced in these generally one-person shops where the attention to top quality materials and workmanship was the standard. It is most important when purchasing a fine violin for investment, that the utmost effort is made to find the best example of a particular maker or school in the finest condition possible. This violin is in excellent original condition without repairs.



The starting offer is $49 and the violin will sell to the high buyer without reserve.
