Mittenwald lion head violin, 19th century

A fine antique mid 19th century lion head violin. The violin was made around 1860 in Mittenwald on the Stainer model, as indicated by the label. The scroll is a thoroughly carved lion head made by Martin Kriner. The eyes, the eyebrows, the wavy hair and the tongue of the lion are beautifully and carefully carved. The thin varnish is of a dark redbrown color over a yellow ground, it is nicely patinated. The small soundholes are delicately cut. The violin is well preserved and in very good condition. The violin is completely undamaged and in fine playing condition. Bridge, soundpost and strings are new. The sound is a typical Mittenwald sound, strong and clear, nuttily with an excellent projection. Comes with an appraisal by A. Sprenger Mittenwald for € 3.000.
