Very good old German violin from Saxony, approx. 1920

This old German violin is an exceptionally beautiful instrument that was handcrafted approx. 1920 by an unknown luthier in Saxony. The orange-brown varnish over a lighter ground bears well-made antiqueings that emphasize the mature appearance of the violin, that was carefully built after a Stradivarius model with quite flat arching. Its character is additionally underlined by the impressive flaming of the high quality sycamore maple of which the two-piece back is made. The finely carved scroll clearly is the skillful work of an experienced violin maker. Some expressive traces of use demonstrate that the violin was played by some very good musicians before, and indeed its mature, clear and wamr, powerful sound reveals excellent acoustical qualities, with great resonance and precision. We offer this exceptional violin after a meticulous restoration by our luthier in immediate playing condition.
