For TSC:
Something that you own, something you treasure, something you wish you'd never bought
Technic: overlay texture
A violin I bought on one of my trips to Saint Petersburg, but as an violin expert said, a cheap copy, good to hang on the wall, but I still like it, because it looked like somebody has used it very much. One of my kids had his own way of playing the violin.

old violins are great, I bought at that time two old violins and according to the violin specialist the second one was a good violin.

I agree with you, this violin is so beautiful, even if it is not a perfect musical instrument.... at least it is a fabulous carving ! And of course it means something to you if your child play violin !

thank you Isabella
I like this violin very much, it really looks like somebody has been playing it a lot.
I will repair it myself, so it will look more complete, but I don't think anybody will play it anymore

haha, it's beautiful and the story is also great, I am not a violin player but I somehow think the neck should not be placed in that manner.. would make it a bit difficult to play.

o0o it has character and that is what is important and so pleasing to the eye,
I have two mandolins ... one is very very old and the other more modern, they
belonged to my father ... and a history to go with them too ... a sad one ...but
I could never ever part with them, whether they were old or new, when they
touch the strings of your heart for whatever reason ... they are yours for
all time ;-) oOo
