Violin, probably sold by Beare & Son

In the 20th century, the highly esteemed London atelier Beare & Son imported violins of outstanding quality (primarily from France, England and Germany) which it used to establish evocative brand names such as “Giuseppe Maravelli” or “François Barzoni.” Even experts often thought these names belonged to actual historic luthiers, a fact which indicates the high standards at which the best manufacturers of the European continent worked at that time. This beautiful old violin was probably crafted in England, and it is an impressive reflection of an unknown master's magnificent artisanal sensitivity and abilities. The tone woods of rare and eye-catching beauty and the orange-brown, highly transparent oil varnish pay tribute to the Italian violins that inspired it. Furthermore, the stylish visual aesthetic of this violin is an excellent match for its outstanding sound, which is warm, sophisticated and mature, resonant and powerful. We received it in perfect condition; our luthiers went over the violin thoroughly and have made it ready to play.
