19th century Klingenthal Hopf violin

This antique Klingenthal Hopf violin was made early in the 19. century, around 1820, in the famous Hopf workshops in Klingenthal. The back is originally branded Hopf on the button. The model is a typical Hopf model with flat archings and flat ribs. The tonewoods are of quality and beauty: the top is made of fine grained spruce, the two piece back of flamed maple. The aged varnish is of a typical Hopf yellow brown color, with beautiful patination. The violin is remarkably well preserved and in fine undamaged (crackfree) condition. The antique pegs with pearl inlay are especially beautiful and in fine condition. The violin is luthier-set up and in immediate playing condition. Its warm flute-like sound is bright and open, of very good strength and unique in character. Special recommendation!
