Dresden violin after Giovanni Paolo Maggini, Lowendall workshop, c.1880

The fascinating large violin model of the classical Italian maestro Giovanni Paolo Maggini was copied by many craftsmen in the past 400 years, due to the beauty of the double purfling and the additional winding of the scroll. The German "Maggini" violin offered here is one of these instruments; it was built approx. 1880, most probably in the Lowendall workshops and features the Lowendall style that expresses his inimitable personality. The ff-holes were finely cut in an oblique position, and the antique varnish indicates the provenance of the violin tastefully. Of course the most important feature of this violin is its excellent response and the exceptionally good sound, that is large, clear and warm, precise, radiant and full of character - a highly recommendable instrument that is offered with a repair to the button in good condition that was worked over thoroughly by our expert luthiers and is offered ready to play.
