Antique 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 arching sof the Stainer type. Her powerful sound is rich in overtones, bright and clear with a mature undertone. This good instrument is in crackfree condition and shows expressive traces of use that are fitting for a well-played instrument of its quality and age. The varnish is of a light brown color, with beautiful patination. It was applied on a golden-yellow ground. This useful antique violin is one of the best sounding instruments in the price range and its good tone deserves our full recommendation.
