Antique Markneukirchen violin, probably Schuster & Co., after Jacobus Stainer

This light brown varnished antique Markneukirchen violin is an attractive instrument with many traces of history that has a warm, bright sound, it was built after the classical model of Jacobus Stainer, a pattern that influenced violin making in Saxony for many generations. It was built in the early 20th century probably by Schuster & Co., the violin is unlabeled. The violin is a clearly shaped Stainer instrument, with a narrow waist and archings towards the upper and lower bouts. A two piece back with tastefully crafted edges and corners and the purfling let close to the edge demonstrate the flawless skills of the violin maker. He applied a dark red-brown colored varnish that perfectly completes the antique appearance of the violin, the surface shows some signs from playing but the instrument is preserved crack-free and in very good condition. Our luthiers spent time and effort to work it over and made it ready to play. This good instrument recommends itself with its warm, lovely sound bright character and well-balanced across the strings.
