Interesting old master violin, warm, large sound

This remarkable old master violin is shrouded in mystery. Labeled with a facsimile label and dated 18xx it was rather made around 1900, a uniquely personal style pervades its design although the name of its maker and its exact place of origin remain unknown. Whereas the purfling and arching were carried out by an experienced craftsman of great sensibility and indicate influences from the French style, the expressive scroll is relatively small and was delicately carved. A flat and powerful Stradivarius model determines the shape of the body; the antiqued red-brown oil varnish with its attractive, antiqued appearance is of excellent quality and was applied with the greatest care. The tastefully applied antique touches demonstrate the makers experience and aesthetic sense. It has been thoroughly gone over and set up by our experienced luthier and is ready to play. The violin’s outstanding sound which has been recommended by our professional player makes it an ideal instrument for a demanding player. It is a very responsive instrument whose expressive, clear and warm, large voice sings and resonates in tribute to the skill of its unknown maker.
