Seller: californiamusical (118) 100%, Location: Ventura, California, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 333528925266 Offered here is a very lovely 4/4 violin which bears the label of Johann Kulik, a well thought of Czech maker in Prague dated 1860. The label is written in the Bohemian language and Johan is abbreviated "Jan." The label looks authentic and I believe this violin to be the work of this maker. A check of the Henley Dictionary of Violin makers shows Kulik's instruments selling for 100 pounds sterling in 1960. It is a master made violin and with great attention to detail.This violin only one repaired crack on the table (top) which I have pictured about 3 inches long from the saddle on the bassbar. The repair is professional and holding well. There are very few scratches, scuffs and scrapes to the varnish one would expect from a violin of this age. The pegs don't match but work fine.The instrument is extremely playable now and requires no further work. It came to me with the strings pictured. Better strings would improve the sound. The sound is round and warm, a good player.The wood is tight fine grain spruce on the table and incredible lovely flamed maple on the ribs, back, neck. Violin shops in the USA might retail this violin for $5,000. because of the repaired crack. I believe it is worth every penny of that. NOW YOU CAN OWN IT FOR LESS! The violin is sold as is and as pictured. The violin comes WITHOUT BOW. It will be shipped in an old case. 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 and extra $100. Condition: Used but in good Condition
