Saxon violin after J. Stainer, c.1920

This attractive old German violin is a successful Markneukichen/Saxony replica of a Jacobus Stainer, whose distinctive style with flat ribs, vertically aligned sound holes and pronounced arch is well executed. A luminous red-brown varnish over a yellow base covers the maple of the two piece back, which is stamped Stainer, and the medium grained spruce of the top. Beautifully accentuated edges and meticulous purfling round out the historic character of this well preserved handmade instrument of good quality craftsmanship. The appealing expression of a unique handmade instrument introduces a very good sounding violin that was well taken care of. With no repair or damage, this violin is offered in perfect condition. It was thoroughly and professionally worked over in our atelier and is ready to play, unfolding its powerful, bright sound, that is rich in overtones and with long lasting resonance and assertiveness.
