Looking to buy a Wilkanowski violin

March 16, 2019, 10:49 PM · Hello. I currently own a 1920 wilkanowski. One one of earliest ones here in America.

I am looking to buy another one, however it has to be an early model, not the reddish or darkish ones with the W purfling and inlays. Those are the mass produced factory made ones.

For the early violins, It is usually a glossier orange finish with no W inlays on the button and a nice border around the border. More often than not, they have a beautiful stripe pattern found on the back and tuning pegs with centered Ivory and goldish borders.

Thank you, very interested in buying one.
