Help needed for nice Violin ID. Thanks!

Recommended Posts

 

Hi all and Happy New Year,

I´m posting some pictures of a violin a bought about 10 years ago and sold to a friend of mine. The violin has came back to me again for re-sale and I´m wondering what it is since I never really had a clear idea about its origins. I bought it from a Ebay seller in USA for 1.000 USD and I find this instrument OK for the money; I´m quite sure this is an easily identifiable violin but I don´t really have an idea; it looks french for me but I´m not an expert not even a good amateur or connoisseur. So I ask for some help in order to know a little more about this nice violin. The label says Vistoli Luigi fece in Lugo 1921 but I don´t expect this violin to be italian ;) 

Condition is very good apart of some retouching to front table around and under bridge and fingerboard. 

 

Thanks everybody in advance,

                      Luis

To me this looks like a good German/Czech instrument from the first half of the 20th century. But that's just based on a certain "look", I cant really back it up with really solid technical points.

Looks like a decent buy for 1K. I see a pic of a center seam cleat, is that up and down the whole length?

Hi Deans, thanks for your comment,

Yes I can see 5 seam cleats along full back length.
