Old German Violin. Guarnerius model by Hermann Dölling jr., ca. 1920

This old German violin is a quality instrument from the ateliers of Hermann Dölling jr. in Markneukirchen, that was built approx. 1920 and bears the original label inside the body. The unmistakable, nonstandard character of the violin is determined by the broad model, the soft medium/flat arching of the top and back and the large, aesthetic scroll. The spruce of the top is very regular and well-chosen, as is the flamed maple of the two piece back. The purfling was inlaid carefully and demonstrates the excellent skills of the violin makers at Hermann Dölling jr.´s workshops, that achieved good reputation among international experts and musicians. The attractive appearance of the violin is completed by a red-brown colored, glossy spirit-oil varnish that was richly applied. Despute a small repair at the right lower corner, the violin is preserved in perfect condition and was - like all Corilon's instruments - thoroughly worked over by the luthiers in our workshop for violin making and restoration. Ready to play it unfolds its convincing sound that is warm, bright, clear, resonant and rich in overtones.
