Antique German Saxon violin with a bright, warm tone

This antique German violin was built approx. 1930 in Markneukirchen, Saxony, a solid handmade instrument with a bright, warm sound of medium power suitable for home and orchestral use. The flat Stradivarius model features narrow, upright soundholes and and fine purfling that are cut very close to the edges, all of them examples of good, rountined craftsmanship. Beautiful antiqueings and the quality tonewoods express the individual character of the instrument with its top of medium grained spruce and the one piece back of mildly flamed maple, covered by a transparent antiqued red-brown varnish on a golden-yellow ground. The violin is marked by its long history with a mino rrepair to the right soundhole, the instrument has been worked over by our luthiers and is offered ready to play.
