There are no soundpost crack repairs on the instrument. The woods are very old and extremely beautiful in this instrument, especially the highly figured maple back that likely came from a much older instrument. It would be interesting having a dendro made to determine the age of the woods. The violin is in very good playable condition and needs no further work.
The tone is of a very refined, sweet, even, and open quality. You will enjoy it very much! It is a master violin that deserves to be in the hands of a performer! Its definitely a violin for a collector and belongs in a museum. It use to belong to a performer in Italy.Its a very special violin with a great tone!
