An old vintage violin 4/4. Probably American, labeled Samuel Joy Mass. The violin is in good condition, no major cracks are found, the top looks like revarnished since it's not the same color as the other parts? The pegbox is special carved, and looks like mussing a volute, still need a bridge and strings up.
The nut and fingerboard are detached from the neck, need reglued. Special type of violin by some kind of amateur maker in Massachusetts. The item "Old Vintage American Violin 4/4 antique 1949" is in sale since Wednesday, July 14, 2021.
