Antique Markneukirchen violin, by Schuster & Co. approx. 1900/1910

This beautiful antique violin from Markneukirchen in Saxony was built in approximately 1900/1910 in the renowned workshops of Schuster & Co., as indicated by the maker's label. The model is designed after the historical pattern of Antonio Stradivari, with the characteristically shaped ff-holes and the flat to medium archings of top and back. Dark red-brown transparent varnish covers the regular grain of the spruce top and the flames of the flamed two-piece sycamore maple back. A very tasteful appearance, that is, just as the thoroughly made edgework, a demonstration of excellent craftsmanship, is preserved undamaged in good condition. Minor varnish nicks, traces of use and scratches indicate, that this instrument has a rich musical biography and was often and intensively played. Our luthiers worked over this crackfree instrument completely that is substantially undamaged and made it ready to play; it features a convincingly strong, mature, , warm resonant sound, that is bright and with some mellow notes to it.
