Antique German Saxon violin with a bright, warm tone, c.1920

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 good Stradivarius model features narrow, upright soundholes and and fine purfling, all of them examples of good, routined craftsmanship. Beautiful golden-brown varnish and the quality tonewoods express the individual character of the instrument with its top of medium grained spruce and the two piece back of mildly flamed maple, covered by a transparent golden-brown varnish on a golden-yellow ground. The violin is marked by its long history with traces from playing, but it has no cracks, the instrument has been worked over by our luthiers and is offered in perfect condition, ready to play.
