Outstanding German violin, Saxony approx. 1920

This old violin with an outstanding tone in the price range was built around 1920 in the renowned Markneukirchen as a very successful work after models of the classical master Antonio Stradivari. It is a very good example of the flawless quality that can be found in the Stradivari copies from Saxony. The unknown violin maker precisely knew the characteristics of famous Italian patterns, and he followed them closely as it is demonstrated by the elegant outline of the body, the arch and the artistic work at the scroll. Good quality tonewoods were chosen to craft this instrument with flat archings, mildly flamed maple for the two-piece back and medium grained spruce for the table. With only a minor repair to the button that is considered in the price, this violin is preserved in excellent, crackfree condition. After a complete work-over by our luthiers it is offered ready to play with an exceptional warm and mature, balanced, resonant and powerful sound.
