Master violin by Georg Reinl, Erfurt

This master instrument from the year 1952 is an exceptionally lovely violin. It is a flawless manifestation of Erfurt luthier Georg Reinl's model, which was patterned after the classic Italian master Guarneri. The brandmark on the neck and Reinl's original label confirm that the violin is indeed the work of this experienced and productive master, a man who came from the Bohemian town of Fleissen and settled in the German state of Thuringia after World War II. The evenly and moderately grained spruce of the top and closely flamed sycamore maple of the two-piece back are premium-quality tone woods set off by a rich coat of luminous orange oil varnish. The culmination of Reinl's precise and skillful craftsmanship can be seen in the scroll, a magnificent carving marked by refined aesthetic sensibilities. It gives the instrument a crowning touch which is a wonderful complement to its sound: bright, powerful, clear and brilliantly radiant. The outstanding master violin was meticulously worked over in our atelier, and it has earned our warmest recommendation.
