This antique violin is a copy of the Italian maker G.F. Pressenda circa 1870 (based on the label). It is probably of German origin.
It has recently been restored by the Violin Shop of Florida with a new bridge, planed fingerboard, bushings, new pegs, new strings and an appraisal.
The violin's top is a two-piece medium grained spruce. The one-piece back is of flamed maple descending slightly from right to left. The scroll, peg box, and neck are of one piece of maple. The oil varnish is a brown red over yellow ground.
The violin is in good condition.
Sale is for instrument only.
