This Saxon violin with ornate edge was built in the Markneukirchen/Klingenthal region approx. 1920 and it is an exceptionally nice antique example of these interesting, nonstandard old stringed instruments. The model follows the patterns of Antonius Stradivarius. The dark red-brown varnish bears traces from playing and strong antique touches, that are completed tastefully by the nicely ornamented edges that feature a black and white twisted band. This richly decorated violin was completely worked over in our workshop and is offered crackfree, in very good condition, immediately ready to play. It unfolds a recommendable sound that is warm, and bright, clear and balanced.
