Oil varnished German violin, approx. 1940

This German violin was handmade in the 1940s, after a beautiful and successfully crafted Stradivari model. The technical limitations of even professional photographic equipment give a quite unprecise impression of the deep red, glossy oil varnish, that is much more beautiful than on our pictures. Due to some minor varnish flaws, caused by dryness, we offer the violin at an extraordinary low rate, despite its excellent quality. Fine purfling and a skillfully crafted scroll demonstrate the aesthetical experience and care of the unknown violin maker. The strong sound of this instrument would match perfectly to a much more expensive violin, a voice that is rich in overtones, powerful an with mature character. We recommend it as a good choice for talented musicians and offer the violin crackfree and in immediate playing condition, worked-over meticulously by our luthier.
