Interesting, probably English violin. Circa 1800

This delicate and elegant violin, which was crafted around 1800 by an unknown master most likely in England, had a slender model as its template. This historic master violin has remained with acceptable restoration in good substantial condition. Its oil varnish has darkened dramatically over time, giving it a historic appearance. The unusually lovely and expressively carved scroll is grafted on and may be a later replacement, a repair that is commonly found on older instruments of high quality which enjoyed frequent use. The specialist luthiers at our atelier for restoration took great pains in meticulously setting up this instrument, which has some flaws but is now ready to play. Its wonderfully warm, mature and sweet, flute-like sound features an outstanding timbre and precision and will win you over.
