This interesting historic master violin is a c.1820 work that hails from the classic Markneukirchen school and its perfect craftsmanship reflects the orientation towards the oeuvre of Stradivari. At the time this instrument was made, luthiers were starting to take up the models of Antonio Stradivari, and the warm, large, mature sound of this violin clearly illustrates the new Italian-inspired trend. Its visual aesthetic also confirms that it is a refined piece by an excellently trained and self-confident master who selected truly interesting tone woods. The magnificent spruce he chose for the top has an expressive interplay of moderate and fine grain – a striking sight made all the more lovely by the attractive contrast to the gentle but tight flames under the coat of transparent golden-brown varnish on the two-piece maple back. The rich details of the playfully executed beesting corners and expressive scroll give this instrument its unmistakable and distinctive appearance. Considering its advanced age, we offer this instrument with significant restoration performed in Vienna in 1892 at a highly reduced price, all of which were carefully reviewed by the luthiers at our workshop as they set it up. The gorgeous historic Stradivarius copy violin, now ready to play, has a winning maturity to its sound, and it features the character of a historic personality.
