German violin, approx. 1940

This German violin was handmade in the 1940s, a nicely handmade Stradivari model which was made in Saxony. The technical limitations of even professional photographic equipment give a quite unprecise impression of the orange red, glossy oil varnish, that is much more beautiful than on our pictures. Due to some minor varnish flaws, we offer the violin at an extraordinary low rate, despite its solide quality and the workover we spent. The clear sound of this instrument matches a young student, a good choice for beginners and offer the violin crackfree and in immediate playing condition, worked-over meticulously by our luthier.
