Richly ornated Markneukirchen violin, approx. 1930

This beautifully carved violin was built approx. 1930 in Markneukirchen/Saxony after the patterns of Guernarius and is a very typical and successful piece, that features a pegbox highly decorated with rare floral ornaments. The Guarnerius model is unmistakably expressed by the characteristical slim shape and the archings and the style of the soundholes, a violin that rightfully bears the corresponding Stainer stamp on the outside of the back. The luminous golden-orange-brown varnish is very transparent and features strong antique touches, a character that is matched tastefully by the strong flaming of the two piece maple back. The violin is preserved crackfree and without any repairs, it was completely worked over by our luthiers and is offered in very good condition, ready to play. Its voice is mature and powerful, warm, with good clarity and resonance in the higher ranges, balanced across the strings with comfortably warm notes. Our special recommendation.
