Violin, Germany c.1900 (workshop)
The tone of this violin is warm, dark and strong.
The two-piece back has a light to medium curl with matching ribs and scroll. It has been suitably varnished a dark brown to match its voice. There is an unidentified maker’s stamp.
The label states Nicolas Bertolini, a fictional maker name found in large numbers of Mirecourt factory-produced instruments from c.1880 confirming that this instrument was made in one of those workshops.
This will suit up to an advanced or tertiary level student.
Length of back: 360mm
