Antique violin, after Guarnerius, approx. 1900

This interesting antique German violin is a powerful and assertive Guarnerius model that was made around 1900 in the atelier of an unknown Saxon violin maker. Precise and quality-conscious craftsmanship and well-selected tone woods — regular grained spruce for the top, and mildly flamed maple for the two-piece back. The flat arching, the thoroughly applied purfling and bold scroll, that has a typical Germanic character, are the mark of a routined hand that did good and solid work. Like all instruments in our catalogue, we have carefully worked over this antique violin, that is an in its price range outstanding instrument, and made it ready to play. We recommend its large, voluminous, powerful and warm voice, a sound that will also win over demanding musicians.
