This antique German violin with an unmistakable Saxonian provenance was built approx. 1900 in Markneukirchen, the famous center of violin making in the Vogtland region, presumably in the Paulus workshops for violin maker Richard Paulus in Freiburg, whose label it bears. The violin was built after a slim Stradivari model with medium arch. The arch and purfling is a work of profound craftsmanship, as well as the shape of the small scroll and the edgework. The red-brown varnish bears fien quality antiqueings and shows only little signs from playing. This good antique German violinis offered undamaged, in very good condition and, like all Corilon instruments, it was carefully worked over by our luthiers, who made it ready to play. The clear, bright sound unfolds with good strength and radiant quality. Like all violins from us, this includes our trade-guarantee and an optional certificate of appraisal.
