Interesting Italian violin, Michelangelo Puglisi, 1919

Violins made by the modern Sicilian master Michelangelo Puglisi are highly sought after by soloists, since their outstanding sound qualities and unique expressions of the luthier's originality make them excellent representatives of Italian violinmaking. Reale Puglisi & Figlio, the family-operated workshops for bowed and plucked instruments, were founded in 1880 by Michelangelo Puglisi's father, Giuseppe Reale Puglisi. In 1906, Michelangelo Puglisi took over the business. There are not many of Michelangelos' handcrafted pieces, but to this day his instruments remain popular amongst demanding musicians. This elegant elegant Italian violin, which features a dated original label, is compelling proof as to why Puglisi's work was so well regarded. The flat arches of the instrument are sophisticated, and its high quality is evident in the beautiful flaming on the two-piece maple back. The small, delicate scroll on a long, narrow peg box and the pronounced corners expresses the violin's individual and elegant style. The rich coat of reddish-brown oil varnish has developed interesting crackling on the back and scroll, and suffered from unprofessional treatment and varnish loss some of which is very intense; the overall aesthetic serves as a complement to this Italian violin's character. Michelangelo's exceptional master violin has been brought back to life by our specialist for restoration, it is a beautiful violin full of character and expresses a warm, matured Italian voice; its resonant clarity is highly recommended. This Michelangelo Puglisi violin was meticulously set up by the experts in our atelier and is offered ready to play.
