Antique German violin after Stainer, c.1910

In the early 20th century around 1910 this violin was crafted by an unknown luthier in the traditional violin making town of Klingenthal in Saxony, after a slim Stainer model with high, pronounced archings. The provenance of the violin is evident in the workmanship and the typical color of the varnish, that developed nice, antique patina and bears some traces of age and use, according to the long history of the instrument. The mildly flamed maple of the one-piece back is an excellent tonewood that was well chosen and corresponds tastefully to the grain of the spruce top. This violin is preserved in very good condition and was thoroughly worked over by our luthiers who made it ready to play. Its sound is warm, resonant, clear and precise, bright, and rich in overtones.
