Old German violin. Saxony, approx. 1900

This antique German violin with an unmistakable Saxonian provenance was built approx. 1900 in Markneukirchen, the famous center of violin making in the Vogtland region, presumably in the workshopsof A.C. Glier. The violin was built after a slim Stradivari model with medium arch. The arch and purfling is a work of profound craftsmanship, as well as the shape of the small scroll and the edgework. The red-brown varnish bears many scratches and traces from time, history and playing. This good antique German violin is with and undamaged body in very good condition and, like all Corilon instruments, it was carefully worked over by our luthiers, who made it ready to play. The clear, bright sound unfolds with medium strength and quality.
