3/4 violin from Markneukirchen, 1920's. Clear strong tone

This old German 3/4 violin was crafted approx. 1920 in an unknown workshop in Saxony, after the traditional patterns of Antonio Stradivari. The top and the back feature the typical, medium high arching with strong flutings. Medium grained spruce was chosen for the top, a charming contrast with the tender purfling. The scroll is nicely carved and expresses an unmistakable style. Golden-brown varnish with subtle antiqueings was applied over a light ground that is typical for this region of violin making. Most minor scratches and signs from playing underline the antique appearance of the violin, and introduce a handmade quality 3/4 violin with a very good, strong sound that was always a pleasure to play. No flaws and no repairs - this instrument that is well preserved after almost 100 years. Its recommendably strong sound is large and rich in volume, with a warm but rather bright character. This 3/4 violin from Saxony was worked over completely in our workshop and is offered in immediate playing condition.
