Markneukirchen violin by Louis Dölling, Jr., 1934

In 1934, this old violin was made in the highly regarded Markneukirchener atelier of Louis Dölling jun. It is unmistakably a masterpiece whose provenance is confirmed by a dated original label as well as a brand mark on the lower rib. After the death of the atelier's founder in 1917, Dölling's family continued to run the business under his good name and carry on the legacy of the cosmopolitan master. The intensely radiant oil varnish with its golden-yellow to red tones are a striking reflection of the instrument's quality, which has been preserved in perfect condition and free of cracks. The one-piece back of deeply flamed sycamore maple and the delicate carving of the scroll are a testament to the experience and refined aesthetic sensibilities of its luthier. Slight crackling on the back enhances the historic character of this violin, which has a compelling and mature sound. Powerful and large, voluminous and dominant, its voice fulfils soloist standards. It was meticulously set up by the specialists in our atelier and is now ready to play.
