3/4 violin, antique German, late 19th century

Obviously they enjoyed the light, warm and open sound of the instrument, which is strong and precise, with a sweet character in the upper ranges. The violin was built around 1880 and presents outstanding quality of craftsmanship with its harmonically rounded edges,...

Obviously they enjoyed the light, warm and open sound of the instrument, which is strong and precise, with a sweet character in the upper ranges. The violin was built around 1880 and presents outstanding quality of craftsmanship with its harmonically rounded edges, fine and accurate purfling and small, precisely carved soundholes.
