Fine Mittenwald violin after Aegidius Kloz, c.1800

Dating from around 1800, this highly interesting Mittenwald violin is an excellent work made in the Klotz tradition of Mittenwald. A label inside refers to Aegidius Klotz and dates the violin to 1798, a reference to the Klotz family by a lesser known master in the circle of the Klotz family who built this violin very cleanly and with the greatest of care. Elements of the elegant model indicate the strong influence of Aegidius Klotz' violin model. The medium to finely-grained spruce of the top and the mild flames of the maple used in the one-piece back reflect its maker's extensive experience and elegant style, which are also evident in the well-executed sound holes and purfling. The aged varnish shows patina and some traces of use which are fitting for the violin's age, as is the grafted scroll - which is an excellent later work. Our atelier for violin making and restoration has meticulously worked over this lightweight instrument, that has some expertly made and indeed well acceptable restoration. With its wonderfully mature and aged sound full of strength, warmth and balance, this violin is an impressive testimony to the reasons why the Klotz school plays such an important part in the history of European violin making. This delicate Mittenwald master violin features a warm and mature, aged voice which is bright and sweet in the upper registers.
