Old German lion head violin

An especially good sounding old German lion head violin. The violin was made in Saxony around the turn of the century c.1900. The model is after Jacobus Stainer as indicated by a brandstamp on the back. The top is made of medium grained spruce, the one piece back of softly flamed maple. The scroll is a typical saxon lion head, the tongue is preserved. The edges are ornated. The instrument is perfectly preserved, crackfree and undamaged. The violin comes in playing condition with a new bridge and a new set of Pirastro strings. The sound is well balanced, strong, clear and dark with excellent volume.
