Very good old German violin from Saxony, approx. 1920

This old German violin is an exceptionally beautiful instrument that was handcrafted approx. 1920 by an unknown luthier in Saxony. The antiqued red-brown varnish over a lighter ground emphasizes the mature appearance of the violin, that was carefully built after a Stradivarius model with flat arching. Its character is additionally underlined by the impressive flaming of the high quality sycamore maple of which the one-piece back is made. The scroll clearly is the skillful work of an experienced violin maker. Some expressive traces of use demonstrate that the violin was played by some very good musicians before, and indeed its warm, mature, bright sound reveals excellent acoustical qualities, with great resonance and precision. We offer this crackfree violin after a meticulous workover by our luthier in immediate playing condition.
