Antique violin from Saxony. Approx. 1880

This beautiful antique Violin with a surprisingly good sound and workmanship of antique quality hails from Saxony, it was built approx. 1880 after the well-proven model of Antonio Stradivari. Tonewoods of flawless quality were used for the well crafted Instrument with flat archings, regular medium grained spruce for the top and narrow flamed maple for the two-piece back. A patinated light-orange brown spirit-oil varnish with intensive traces from playing covers the premium tonewoods of this undamaged violin. The luthiers in our violin shop meticulously worked over this antique violin, that is offered in ready to play condition. The warm, mature, ringing sound has some dark, mature notes and is full character.
