19th century: Antique German violin from Saxony, c.1850

This mid 19th century German violin from Saxony has a sound of outstanding quality and is an excellent instrument for demanding musicians. The violin was built in the 1850's - it obviously survived two world wars in Germany. meaningful patina and traces of use indicate its long history - and is a perfectly preserved example for the violin making tradition in Saxony, where many fine stringed instruments with convincing aesthetic and musical qualities were built. The skilled maker crafted the top of medium grained spruce and chose beautiful flamed maple for the back. The highly transparent, shining golden-brown colored varnish is an exceptionally successful work. Precise and experienced craftsmanship is demonstrated by the small scroll and the fine purfling, that was crafted with utmost care. Our luthiers spent time and effort to work over this good antique violin, that is crackfree and like all Corilon instruments and bows offered in premium condition, ready to play and to unfold its warm, mature sound, a clear voice that combimes mellowness and sweetness and is rich in overtones.
