18th century: Tyrolean master violin, unknown, approx. 1750

This mature, mid 18th century Tyrolean master violin ranks amongst the most remarkable instruments we have discovered in recent months. And it comes as a surprise that its maker's name and label has been lost in history, given the exceptionally fine quality of the violin's flawless craftsmanship and individual appearance. Defining features indicate that the violin was made in the Alpine region of Tyrol, influenced by the predominant school of Klotz in Mittenwald at the time. The delicate golden brown varnish applied on a golden-yellow ground has developed interesting patina and determines the antique appearance of this fine master violin. The expressive carving of the scroll is of a quality that is nearly unparalleled. It has serial number from the esteemed London experts W. E.Hill & Sons on the fingerboard. Our expert restorer has meticulously restored this fine 18th century violin that was then reviewed by a professional violinist. We recommend it to professionals and demanding musicians because of its warm, full, matured sound with a wealth of timbres that permit a wide range of finely nuanced interpretations.
