Good antique Markneukirchen viola, approx. 1900

This antique German viola was crafted around 1900 in Markneukirchen on the model of Antonius Stradivarius, and it is an excellent expression of of the good standards in craftsmanship of trade instrument that had developed in this region. Quality tonewoods were chosen by an experienced workshop and covered with a transparent varnish of golden-brown that determines the antique appearance of the instrument. The strong flaming of the maple back is underlined by subtle antiqueings. Perfectly preserved, this good antique Markneukirchen viola has both a beautiful aesthetic and a highly recommendable voice, that is bright, well-balanced, warm, nuanced and of good strength.
