Antique German violin from Saxony, approx. 1920

This violin is a powerfully sounding antique German violin with an unmistakable Saxonian provenance. It was built approx. 1920 in Markneukirchen, the famous center of violin making in the Vogtland region, presumably in the workshopsof A.C. Glier. The violin was built after a Stradivari model with medium arch, the model is indicated by a Stradivarius label. The arch and purfling is a work of profound craftsmanship, as well as the shape of the small scroll and the accentuated edges. The antiqued, light-brown varnish is shiny and in excellent condition, it bears some minor traces from playing. This good antique German violin is with a pegbox repair and bushings but an undamaged body in very good condition and, like all Corilon instruments, it was carefully worked over by our luthiers, who made it ready to play. The clear, warm, and dark sound is large, voluminous, well balanced and unfolds strongly, noteworthy is the immediate responce and ease to play.
