Fine master violin by Ernst Reinhold Schmidt

This instrument is an especially beautiful and rare German masterpiece from the 1930ies. It was probably made in Markneukirchen by Ernst Reinhold Schmidt (1857-1928), the violin bears a brandstamp of his initials E.R.S. inside on the back plate near the top block. The varnish is a rich oil varnish of an intensely shining bright golden orange brown color. The fine quality woods are medum grained spruce for the top, the one piece back of flamed maple. The instrument is well preserved and in immediate playing condition. The violins bright ringing sound is of excellent power, warmth, clarity and maturity.
