Violin by F. A. Meisel, Klingenthal, 1910

This antique violin was built in the family workshop of Friedrich August Meisel in Klingenthal, Saxony, an original instrument that bears a dated handwritten label inside. Since the death of F. A. Meisel sen. in 1894 his sons cooperated in his atelier, managed by Friedrich August Meisel jun. He labeled their works with the good name of their father, who was well-known for his artisanal talents, and made sure they were sold. The violin offered here is an excellent student instrument, with some straightforward details such as the simpler scroll, in order to be able to offer best musical qualities at an affordable rate. Nevertheless, the beautiful spruce top and the mildly flamed, two-piece maple back determine the handsome appearance of the violin that features a light-brown colored varnish with the antique character of its patina and interesting traces of use. This well-preserved instrument is undamaged and was carefully worked over in our atelier, ready to play with its very delicate sweet sound, that is warm and features a rather bright than dark note.
