Antique Saxon-Bohemian violin, after Jacobus Stainer
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 archings of the Stainer type. The varnish is of a light brown color, with beautiful antiqueings, applied on a golden-yellow ground. This good "Stainer" instrument has a wonderful one-piece back and accurate purflings, it is in crackfree condition and shows some traces of use that are fitting for a well-played instrument of its quality and age. Her powerful, warm sound is rich in overtones, bright and clear with a mature undertone. This indeed very useful antique violin is one of the best sounding instruments in the price range and its good tone deserves our full recommendation.
