NIPPON violin, pre 1921
This is a decent instrument , made in Japan during the early part of the 20th. century. I've seen a few of these, and they're all pretty nicely made. This one has a very distinctive Manchurian maple back! Very interesting, swooping vertical flames! Although this is a slightly lower grade than some of the Nippon instruments that I've worked on, it's nicely restored and set up.
