Very Old German Violin, $700

Photo for Ad 132472

I just set up this old violin. Since it was probably revarnished at some point, I am not sure how old it is but I would guess mid to late 1800s. It is based on a Stainer model and has a grafted scroll (the original scroll was grafted on to a new neck). The violin has a few repairs including a button repair, pegbox cheek repair, two f-hole wing repairs, and a repaired crack off to the right of the tailpiece (not near sound post).
There is a very faint label inside which looks like it says Bernadel but the violin bears no resemblance to that maker. It has a very mature, resonant tone that is on the dark side - good volume, too.

I am pricing this and a couple other violins for the holiday season. $40 shipping. I will pay half the return shipping fee if you don't like it after 72 hours. If you receive additional photos, I would appreciate a response. Happy pickin' and bowin'!
