This good sounding antique violin was made in Saxony/Bohemia around 1900. It is a beautiful, hand-crafted violin made after the patterns of Jacobus Stainer: it has typical characteristics, petite and short F-holes and high arching sof the Stainer type. Her powerful sound is rich in overtones, bright and clear with a mature undertone.

The varnish is of a light brown color, with beautiful patination. It was applied on a golden-yellow ground.
