Saxon violin, approx. 1900
This violin was built approx. 1900 in Markneukirchen, Saxony, a solid instrument built by an unknown violin maker. It has features such as the high ribs and soundholes that are cut very close to the edges, all of them examples of good craftsmanship. The accentuated edges and the fine purfling express the individual character of the instrument with its top of medium grained spruce and the back of mildly flamed maple, that are covered by a shining red-brown varnish and a layer of protective transparent varnish. The violin is marked by its long history, varnish flaws, but with no damages; and we offer the instrument ready to play at a reduced rate. The sound of this antique violin is flawless and beautiful, with warm and dark tones.
Length of back: 35.8 cm
