Old German "Conservatory violin" after Stradivari, approx. 1930

This good quality "Conservatory violin" from the traditional German violin making region in Saxony was built in the 1930's after the classical model of Antonio Stradivari. The instrument features a slim body with flat archings and presents a finely inlaid purfling and characteristical ff-holes that were cut after the famous Italian pattern as evidence of premium craftsmanship. The unknown luthier chose quality tonewoods for this old German violin, interestingly fine to medium grained spruce for the top and strongly flamed maple for the two-piece back. The glossy. transparent varnish is tastefully colored and bears some traces of use as they are common for an antique instrument of such a high age, and they indicate that its former owners obviously loved to play this violin. It is preserved without any repairs in excellent condition and was worked over thoroughly in our workshop, so it is offered ready to express the powerful sound of the Stradivari model, a strong and mature voice, that features good resonance and clarity especially in the lower ranges.
