This is a full size violin made in 1920 by Josef Metzner in Sachsen (Saxony Germany). This violin has some moderate signs of wear and tear as expected from an instrument of this age, and the varnish in general has a "crinkled" appearance (somewhat typical for instruments of this age). It was repaired at some point, noted by the penciled in note (visible in photo) by "I.M. Johnson," and here at Fiddlershop, we completed our typical set up with a new bridge and soundpost, strings and deep cleaning.
The violin sounds absolutely remarkable as you can hear in the video below.
Tailpiece: Tulip rosewood with ebony saddle

Love my violin!
I am so happy with this violin. It has a very unique look and sound that I love. Purchasing through Fiddlershop was a great experience from start to finish. The violin shipped from Florida to Alaska without any issues. Claire was wonderful and she answered all my questions and made sure the violin arrived with everything I asked for. Thank you!
