Rare old master violin around 2nd half 1800 - unknown master. Nº 220  

Rare old master violin around 2nd half 1800. Please listen to the video/soundfile & click on the image to see all detailed XXL photos as part of the description! This master violin is a fine selection for professional musicians. It was made by an unknown master in the mid-19th century. Aestheticly selected tone woods, masterly carved scroll, which has been professionally grafted to the neck and accurately inlaid purfling shows the skilled craftsmanship of an experienced luthier. Much like the repairs and touch-ups, the care with which the peg holes were bushed is an eloquent testimony to the appreciation that musicians have shown to this intensely-played historic instrument in the course of its approximately 150 years. This beautiful violin shows now no open cracks or open seams. The table is medium to fine grained spruce and the 1-piece back, as well as ribs and neck, is nicely flamed maple. Like always the violin has been checked by our luthiers and by our violinist on playability.
