Student violin by Meinel & Herold, Klingenthal, c.1940

This violin is a quality student instrument that was handcrafted approx. 1940 for the renowned company Meinel & Herold in Klingenthal, Saxony, that was founded in 1893. It is one of the last instruments that bear the original Meinel & Herold label, before they were forced to unite with the nationally-owned enterprise (VEB) "Klingenthaler Harmonikawerke" of the German Democratic Republic after the war. The violin was made after a proven Stradivari model, with a spirit varnish that features golden-brown color with charming red notes and determines the nice appearance of the instrument. We offer it undamaged in good condition and with only a few traces of use. Like all instruments from Corilon violins, it was completely worked over in our workshop and is in good playing condition. We recommend it as a good educational instrument due to its bright, warm and clear sound, that is comfortably open.
