American-made 4/4 violin from 1943. The maker, Adam Skora, is unknown to our luthier/violin appraiser, but quality of workmanship is very good. The violin was evaluated as follows:
Careful, clean hand work by assumedly American amateur maker, not known to any reference source. Well-flamed one-piece back, matching ribs and neck, neat purfling, red-brown varnish, "interesting" diminutive scroll. Professionally reconditioned and set up to proper specs, with new soundpost and bridge; ebony chin rest.
Body free of cracks or serious issues, never opened-- a few nicks and scratches. Pegbox repair with check doublings over D & A holes, strong, secure.
Sold complete with older hard-shell shape case in good condition, Japanese-made wood bow, and rosin.
Shipping is $50 within the continental US.
