Frank Reiner, Hamburg: violin of 1925

This German violin was made 1925 in the workshops of Frank-Reiner and bears an original label that indicates the "Orchestra-Solo" model of this Hamburg based company. The instrument features an exceptional appearance that is determined by the slim shape of the body, the small scroll on a long pegbox and the finely flamed maple of the two-piece back. The antique character of beautiful patina decorates the violin, that is well-preserved and was worked over by our luthiers completely. It is offered ready to play, with a bright sound that features comfortably warm notes.
