Violin labeled 'Paulus Castello - fecit Genua Anno 1770' (8)?
(19th Century Bohemian -composite)
It is in our opinion that this lovely violin labeled Paulus Castello - Genua is a 19th century Bohemian composite instrument in excellent state of restoration. The one-piece back and sides are of matching woods with even figure. It appears that the Pine top was made for the instrument during the 19th century. The varnish is a rich amber colour. The tone is very clear and even across the strings with good projection.
This violin was recently restored in our shop to a proper state of repair. No work needed!
This instrument would be suitable for either a hard working intermediate student at University level or as a secondary instrument for a professional orchestral musician.
