Seller: californiamusical (117) 100%, Location: Ventura, California, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 333493295548 Offered here is a Real Italian Violin by a Venice Master and bears his label: Marcus Antonius Cerin, Alumnus Anselmi Bellosi, Fecit Venetiae, an 1796 and I have added a picture of that.The back measures 14 3/16 inches. The label looks authentic from books I have seen of this maker and I believe this to be Cerin's work. He is listed in The Henley Universal Dictionary of Violin Makers and that page of the book is shown in the pictures.There is a grafted neck meaning the violin was made before 1800. It is a sweet Italian violin with great attention to detail.This violin has a few small repaired cracks on the table (top) including soundpost but not bassbar. That repair is extremely well done and hardly visible. There are the usual scratches, scuffs and scrapes to the varnish one would expect from a violin of this age. The pegs match and work fine. The violin came to me needing a bridge and I have done my best to cut a good one.The instrument is extremely playable As Is. I even put good strings on it. The sound is sweet, warm, blending and round. This would be a great violin for chamber music any professional would love.This violin has fine construction. The wood is tight fine grain spruce on the table with plain maple on the ribs, back, and neck. Violin shops in the USA might retail this violin for $6,000. I believe it is worth every penny of that. NOW YOU CAN OWN IT FOR MUCH LESS! The violin is sold as is and as pictured. The violin comes WITHOUT BOW. It will be shipped with FREE USPS PRIORITY MAIL SHIPPING in an old case within the USA ONLY. What you see is what you get. Be sure before you bid and ask questions. This auction is meant for the USA only. Overseas shipping is available for an extra $100. Condition: Used but in good Condition
