Antique Markneukirchen violin, by Schuster & Co. approx. 1900/1910

This beautiful antique violin from Markneukirchen in Saxony was built in approximately 1900/1910 in the renowned workshops of Schuster & Co., as indicated by the original maker's label. The model is designed after the historical pattern of Stainer, with the characteristically shaped ff-holes and the medium archings of top and back. Golden orange-brown transparent varnish covers the regular grain of the spruce top and the flames of the flamed two-piece sycamore maple back. A very tasteful appearance, that is, just as the thoroughly made edgework, a demonstration of good, experienced craftsmanship, is preserved in good condition. Minor varnish nicks, traces of use and scratches indicate, that this instrument has a rich musical biography and was often and intensively played. A solid table repair at the right sundhole that has no impact on sound or stability of the violin allows us to offer this great sounding instrument at a reduced price. Our luthiers worked over this instrument meticulously and completely and made it ready to play; it features a convincingly strong, mature, warm resonant sound, that is bright and with some mellow notes to it.
