Rare antique violin with a gentleman's head

This truly uncommon antique violin was made after the Tiefenbrucker model of J .B. Vuillaume that was produced in the Derazey workshop. This violin was made in Saxony in the late 19th century and is decorated with a very successfully carved gentleman's head instead of the scroll, a highly expressive sculpture that is rich in skillfully crafted details and seems to be designed for the different perspectives of the player and the audience. The violin itself is a quality instrument from Saxony that has an attractive antique appearance and characteristically crafted soundholes and arching, the clear work of a skilled violin maker. It is in perfectly preserved condition and was meticulously worked over by our luthiers. We offer this special violin ready to play and recommend its strong sound, that is rich in overtones, dark, clear and with excellent resonance.
