Luminous Red Mittenwald violin, approx. 1940

This good Mittenwald violin was crafted in the 1940ies and features all advantages of tonewoods from the Karwendel mountains: Finest spruce was chosen for the top, and the maple of the one-piece back is beautifully flamed. The full-blooded Mittenwald violin was built after a wide model with flat archings, that is designed after patterns of the great Stradivari. The beautiful, large scroll and the fine purfling are tasteful works of good craftsmanship, just as the shining, red-orange oil varnish over a yellow ground. This good Mittenwald violin is perfectly preserved and was thoroughly worked over in our workshop, ready to unfold its bright, clear and strong voice, that is rich in overtones and warm.
