Fine Italian violin, Giovanni Schwarz, Venice (certificate Eric Blot)

Masterpieces of the modern Venetian school of Eugenio Degani (1840-1915) and his students serve as important bridges to 20th century violin making. Today these fine Italian violins are still highly sought-after instruments which satisfy the utmost demands of professional musicians all over the world. Giovanni Schwarz was apprenticed to Eugenio Degani from 1877 and moved with him to Venice in 1888, where he deepened and developed classical concepts in his own workshop. Giovanni Schwarz's fine Italian violins are the works of an exceptionally gifted master: they were created with flawless design and technical perfection, and they feature unique varnishes which were the fruit of many years‘ experimentation. One of his 1913 Italian violins's most striking features is its rich deep-red oil-based varnish and its delicate texture. With its noble and resonant sound, clear and rich in overtones, this violin is distinguished and full of character — a fine instrument for soloists. We have meticulously made this fine Italian violin ready to play to the highest standard; is offered undamaged in excellent condition, the price includes a certificate of authenticity by Eric Blot, Cremona.
