Saxon violin after J. Stainer, exceptionally attractive sound, c.1910

This attractive old violin is a successful German Markneukichen/Saxony replica of a Jacobus Stainer, whose distinctive style with vertically aligned sound holes and high arch is well executed. A luminous golden-brown varnish over a yellow base covers the deeply flamed sycamore maple of the two piece back, which is stamped Stainer, and the medium grained spruce of the top. Beautifully accentuated edges and meticulous purfling round out the historic character of this well preserved handmade instrument of good quality craftsmanship. Appealing patina and significant traces of use introduce a good sounding violin that was played quite often. With no repair or damage, this violin is offered in very good condition. It was thoroughly worked over in our atelier and is ready to play, unfolding its powerful, warm, matured sound, that is rich in overtones, bright and with long lasting resonance and assertiveness.
