This violin was built approx. 1900 after patterns of Giovanni Paolo Maggini, in the famous center of violin making in Markneukirchen, Saxony. It bears a corresponding label that indicates the Maggini model and is designed especially beautifully with double purfling and an additional winding of the scroll. The red-brown varnish over a shining golden ground underlines the attractiveness of the tonewoods, finely grained spruce that was used for the top, and the narrowly flamed maple of the two-piece back. The arching of this perfectly preserved instrument is executed quite flat. Our luthier completely worked over this fine violin. We are offering it in immediate playing condition and recommend its dark, strong and clear sound.
