SALE Fine Baroque violin in original condition - circa 1800

This fine quality Baroque violin from Markneukirchen/Saxony in original condition can be seen as a typical representation of a historic model, not despite its unusual silhouette but because of it. This interesting baroque violin harkens back to a time in which the standards in the field of violin making were more fluid and allowed room for luthiers to set individual stylistic accents. As a violin dating back to circa 1800, it is a comparatively young exemplar of a period instrument, and its unknown luthier patterned it after a delicate yet broad and uniquely proportioned model. The baroque violin's craftsmanship demonstrates a superior quality and is rich in character; since it is in outstanding completely crackfree condition, the artisanry can still be seen in the overall construction. Both the original neck, upper block and the bass bar - even the original fingerboard - did not fall prey to later modernisation — as is the case with many other older instruments — which means that the baroque violin fully upholds the expectations created by its small and conspicuously baroque sound holes and confidently shaped historic scroll. The top of medium to wide-grained spruce features well-formed and soft fluting; top and back have no cracks as is rarely seen for an instrument of its age. A small repair to the rib has been meticulously secured by the luthiers in our workshop. The baroque violins voice is very strong for a Baroque violin and yet extremely warm. It is precise, resonant and full of power. A rare piece, this baroque violin has been preserved in nearly perfect condition and was meticulously set up in our restoration workshop. It is now ready to play after having been fitted with a high-quality Baroque bridge and gut strings. This piece is affordable, in original condition and meets high musical standards.
