This is a well-toned and attractive violin in excellent condition. Workmanship throughout is very good, notably in the well-balanced scroll, the purfling and the somewhat narrow corners. It is fitted with a generic Stradivari label indicating German origin and was probably made around 1920.

The two-piece back, ribs , neck and scroll are of mildly flamed maple with a narrow to medium curl. The top is of good quality tone spruce with very straight and even growth lines.

This violin is suitable for an advanced student upgrade to entry-level professional performance.


Dimensions :
  Length of back: 36.1 cm

Condition :
  Other than a minor repair to a treble wingcrack, this violin is in superb structural condition, completely free from cracks or other repairs. Scratches and other marks are superficial and consistent with an instrument of this age.

Provenance :
  Owned by Johan Grobbelaar

Price : On request
