Antique Violin from Saxony, approx. 1870

This 19th century violin with its mature sound was built approx. 1870 in Saxony in Germany. It is the highly individual work of an unknown, but undoubtedly skilled luthier. He designed it in an unmistakeable, unique style; especially the outline of the body is a distinctive work. The arching of the top and the back reveals flawless, experienced craftsmanship and is elaborately made of carefully selected tonewoods. There can be absolutely no doubt about the Saxonian provenance of this violin, that is not only indicated by the typical orange-brown varnish, that determines the beautiful appearance of the instrument. Many traces of use an retouch work without any impact on its tonal qualities but allow us to offer this good violin at a reduced price. Our violin makers thoroughly worked over the instrument and made it ready to play. Its strong and fine quality sound is definetly convincing, mature and with old warmth, precise, well-balanced and fluid, with beautiful resonance. Our special recommendation.
