The violin is well-preserved and was crafted in the 1930's after a proven Stradivari model; the distinctive scroll is the clear quick work of an experienced hand. The sliughtly antiqued varnish is orange brown colored and bears and some slight traces from playing, that are common for an instrument that obviously was a joy to play. Our expert violin makers completely worked over this violin, that is offered crackfree in very good condition ready to expresses its large, dark but clear and warm, resonant voice.
