Seller: hallboys321 (2,521) 100%, Location: Wilmington, Delaware, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 123486265405 Antique Violin Inlaid Purfling w/ Case 1884 Repair Label from August Gemunder Item Description Note: All items in our store include NO sales tax to our US customers! Here is a nice well made Antique Violin for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep it for yourself! The rosin residue was still fresh on this violin when we got it, so was being played until very recently. Do not find ones like this very often. Has a nice sound to it. The violin was probably made in the early to mid 1800s could be a bit older than that. The pictures do not do justice to the beauty of this violin. Beautiful inlaid purfling on this violin. The violin has a two piece soundboard and two piece back. Nice reddish brown stain on the of the entire violin. Beautiful accentuated arching to the belly and back of this violin, not a factory made violin here, very well crafted. Some minor finish loss and minor nicks over the years to the body of the violin. Look at the pictures of the soundboard/belly very closely in zoom mode to see what we are describing. A couple of hairline cracks that emanate down by the saddle. A ridge on the belly on the right side of the fingerboard, my guess is from a fingernail of a previous player. This violin did see a lot of playing. The tuning pegs, tailpiece, chin rest, and end peg are very well done on this violin. End peg appears to be a bit small for the end hole. The back of the violin is quite intact and just beautiful. Some finish loss along the edges and on the back. A hairline near the bottom of the violin emanating from bottom edge to 2.25" up in to the body. There is a patch up by the button on the back of the violin. That is most likely the repair done by Gemunder in 1884. Nice inlaid purfling, f hole, and scroll work. The corner blocks are in place. The beaks look good. The fingerboard has some finish loss, but no ridging that would impede string play. The four tuning pegs match. The soundboard and back are tightly glued to the sides, no separations to report. The sound post is in place. Cannot guarantee it will be once shipped to you. The maple back's finish has a translucent look to it when you view it, nice tiger striping. The purfling appears to all be in place. The neck is securely attached to the body of the violin. No repairs to the neck, tuner box or tuner peg holes. No cracks or splits there. The scroll on the end of the neck is very well done. The belly and back of the violin is still securely glued to the sides. Beaks show wear down, again from a lot of playing time. The label in the violin has "Repaired by August Gemunder, New York 1884". The 84 is hand written in with ink. August was the brother of George Gemunder, considered the best American maker of violins. There is not a maker label in this violin. The bridge is an Aubert from France and has the Randy Hardy name on it. The violin is 23-7/16" long, by 8-3/16" across at the lower bout and 6-7/16" across at the upper bout. The violin body is 14" long. The violin is in a newer vintage Afton hard case that shows some wear to the outside finish. Inside blue material still in good condition. Latches work. No key for the case. The violin will be securely wrapped in the case as well as on the outside to make sure it gets thru safely to you. The strings, tuning pegs, and tailpiece will be removed to more safely ship the violin to you. So, expect some reassembly. The violin comes with a tailpiece and the end pin is in place as well. This musical instrument is not represented to be in playing condition. There will need to be refurbishing done to make this instrument playable again. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures.
