Fine German master violin, mid 20th century
The provenance of this beautiful German master violin is quite mysterious, a stunning fact due to the extraordinary fine quality of the instrument that was built in the 1930s by an unknown German violin maker. The medium high arching of the top, its fine spruce wood and the soft fluting impressively demonstrate the skills of a well-educated master, who chose deeply flamed sycamore maple for the two-piece back, a great tonewood as well! The soundholes, the purfling and the edges were thoroughly and precisely crafted, a state-of-the-art violin that is the clear work of a talented and experienced hand. The golden-brown colored shining oil varnish was richly applied and features a beauty that is rarely found. Some craquelle and some storing traces as they can be found on this violin are typical for this kind of quality varnish. Our experienced luthier worked over this great instrument and spent great time and effort according to the quality of the violin, that expresses its amazing voice ready to play, with a bright and warm sound, that is rich in overtones and resonant.
