This old German master violin with a beautiful oil varnish and the dated original label is a masterpiece from 1951 made by Kunstgeigenbau Teddy Meyer in Herford, North Rhine-Westphalia. This is a handsome and expressive unique violin, well handcrafted with a suitably convincing tone. The orange-brown oil varnish bears delicate craquelle and only a few traces of playing. The two-piece back is made of mildly flamed maple and the top is made of medium grained spruce. The flat concept of the arching and fine purfling and cornerwork reveals the hand a carefully working master. The sound of this German master violin, which is preserved crackfree and with its slender neck well playable for small hands, is warm, direct, rich, ringing and of strong volume and power. Like all violons from us this has been completely worked over and refurbished by our violin making workshop and is offered in best playing condition.
