Antique violin from Klingenthal, approx. 1850

This antique mid 19th century violin with a mature, clear, exceptional sound is a well-preserved piece of flawless craftsmanship from the town of Klingenthal in Saxony, where it was built on a Stainer model approx. 1850. The light-brown varnish was thinly applied over a light ground as it is typical for the violin-making-tradition influenced by the great Hopf workshops at the time. The varnish developed interesting patina and determines the antique appearance of this highly recommendable Klingenthal violin. The scroll is full of character and demonstrates the skills of a well-educated hand, just as the nice purfling, that was neatly executed. We recommend this antique 19th century violin for its exceptional state of preservation and sound in this price range - a clear, warm responsive sound, sweet and resonant voice rich in overtones, that is ready to play after a complete work-over in our atelier for violin making and restoration. The violin has no cracks or damage.
