Not sure why, a couple of knicks but no cracks. The tail piece is very fancy with inlay work. I cannot say this is an item that could be restored. The violin is apart, and I am not any sort of expert in violin restoration. The wood and body appear to be in good shape, at least I cannot see any cracks or breaks in the wood. Very beautiful look to the wood. But obviously the violin has condition issues, it's all apart for one. And I can't say it could be made playable again. If you are reading this description you most likely know alot more about violins then me. It comes with a German bow. And a hard shell case. The case does show some wear.
