C. A. Wunderlich, violin, approx. 1920

Violins from the well-known house of C. A. Wunderlich in Siebenbrunn near Markneukirchen, Saxony, consistently attract our attention due to their excellent quality. The instrument offered here was built approx. 1920 and bears the original label of the important instrument merchant, who purchased his violins from the best masters of the "Musikwinkel" region in Southern Saxony and Northern Bohemia. This piece after Jacobus Stainer is an exceptionally beautiful example of good craftsmanship, too, the clear work of an experienced violin maker, who refrained from attaching his own label in favor of C. A. Wunderlich´s renowned name. Medium grained spruce and intensively mildly maple, premium quality tonewoods, were chosen for the instrument that reveals excellent standards of craftsmanship by the well-designed and precisely crafted arching. Red-brown colored spirit-oil varnish was applied over a golden-yellow ground and determines the attractive appearance of the violin, that features accentuated edges and is preserved in undamaged condition. It was thoroughly worked over by the violin makers in our workshop and is offered ready to play, with a highly recommendable sound, that is warm and mature, clear and full of character.
