This is a fully restored antique 4/4 violin, fiddle. There is an old label visible inside the f hole: Antonius Stradiuarius Cremonensis, faciebat anno 1725 (the last two digits handwritten in ink).It is clearly very old. Most likely it is an early 1900s German copy. There is an old repaired crack coming down from the right f hole.
And another small one on the left f hole. The seam in the end pin area has also been re-glued.All repairs are professionally done and completely stable; they have no effect on the play ability or the sound of the violin. Plenty of scuffs and scratches on the top deck; all touched up. Other than these, the violin is structurally sound, and in excellent ready to play condition. It will get even better with new quality strings, and regular playing. Dimensions are: length 14 and 1/8" width 8 and 1/8". The item "Beautiful Early 1900s 4/4 Violin, Great Tone!
