This beautiful ornate violin was built approx. 1930 in Markneukirchen/Saxony and is a gorgeous and successful piece after Giovan Paolo Maggini, that features a beautiful red-brown oil varnish and a back adorned with beautiful purfling ornaments. The Maggini violin model is unmistakably expressed by the characteristical shape, the archings, the additional winding of the scroll and the style of the soundholes, a violin that rightfully bears the corresponding faded Maggini label inside of the back. The luminous red-brown varnish is very transparent and features strong antique touches, a character that is matched tastefully by the mild flaming of the one piece maple back. This gorgeous violin is preserved in very good condition with a minor f-wing repair to the right soundhole wing only, it was completely worked over by our luthiers and is offered in very good condition, ready to play. Its voice is mature and powerful, warm, with good clarity and resonance in the higher ranges, balanced across the strings with comfortably warm notes. Our special recommendation.
