Item specifics

Seller Notes: Substantial old worm damage to back. No back cracks; old top cracks solidly repaired. Needs new strings.
Original or Reproduction:

Original

 

17th or 18th century violin bearing a 1692 Gofriller label. Violin of indeterminate geographic origin; while label appears to be original or roughly contemporary with the violin, it bears no resemblance to Venetian violins of the same period and should not be construed as such (if I thought it could remotely be a Gofriller, I would not be selling it, much less doing so here). What is certain is that the violin is a very old instrument, well over 200 years old, with extensive old worm damage to the back that appears to have been addressed at some point in the past.

One-piece lower rib, all blocks and linings present, saddle very slightly inlaid into lower rib, grafted neck.

The violin will require new strings. It was played for a short time with a Baroque tailpiece and gut strings (now removed) and had a very responsive and even tone.

Buyer welcome to examine violin in person.

Return it if you don't like it, but be aware that shipping charges will not be refunded and you will be responsible for arranging and paying for return postage and handling. See return policy section for details.
