Rare Antique Early 1800s Italian German4/4 Violin & Case-14 Inch Back-NiceTone
April 28, 2020
It bears a label: Hohner Copy of Stradivari Made in Germany. The Hohner Violin Company made violins in the later 1800s. This violin looks older and it is my opinion that the violin was made in the early 1800s. This violin has what looks like a grafted neck but it is a repair to the peg box and scroll done professionally and holding well. It is a well made violin with thinner edge work than most German violins usually have. Thin edges are usually an Italian trait as well as a 14 inch back which this violin has! Many German violins have 14 1/4 inches on the back. This violin has a 3 inch repaired crack on the table (top) which is pictured off the left f hole… But not on the soundpost or bassbar. The rest of the violin is in excellent condition. There are the usual scratches, scuffs and scrapes to the varnish one would expect from a violin of this age. The pegs match and work fine. The instrument is playable with the old strings. This violin would be good for orchestral or chamber music. The wood is tight fine grain spruce on the table and nice flamed maple on the ribs, back, neck. I believe it is worth every penny of that. NOW YOU CAN OWN IT FOR LESS! The violin comes WITHOUT BOW.
