This beautiful old German violin has a one piece straight grained maple back displaying mild lateral figuring with moderate optical depth. Ribs and scroll match. The top is of very fine-, straight-grained spruce. The varnish is a rich brownish auburn (brown with red highlights), which through wear has lightened on the back to a lovely honey color. The “antiquing” is from genuine use and wear, and that is very minimal. The violin is modeled on a Amati design, with moderately high arching on the top and back. Preserved well and perfect condition.
