Violin for Sale | 1900s fully restored

From an anonymous donation to IAYO and following a complete refurbishment, this early 1900’s French violin has been lovingly restored to its past glory by Hugo Vegter (String Instrument Specialist) based in Cork City.

It will be available for viewing at his workshop, when current COVID-19 restrictions allow, and they have very kindly agreed to fit and customise it to the prospective new owner.

It has a recommended retail price of €2,000, but we welcome all expressions of interest.

Due to current restrictions it is not possible to view and test the violin at present but we are gathering names of interested parties and will arrange a ‘meeting’ of the Old French Violin at the first opportunity.
