Excellent Antique American Violin-j. Deulin Detroit, Michigan-1923 For Sale

This violin is
guaranteed to be genuine and is authentically labeled,
This particular violin
is an example made well into Deulin's
long career. By 1923, when this violin was made, he had already been in
operation in his own shop for more than 10 years. The violin is in good
original condition with some repairs to the back and the center seam. These repairs were expertly done long ago-are very stable, tight and solid. The varnish is
original and in excellent condition. In fact, overall, the violin appears to be
much newer than its 84 years.
Josef Deulin was a
successful, well-known, listed and respected maker who made his own violins by
hand in Detroit for nearly 50 years.
Thomas Wenberg, in his book Violin makers of the United States provides
a rather complete biography of Deulin.
This violin is
breathtakingly beautiful, from the stunning, original, Neopolitan style oil
varnish, to the fabulous intensely flamed North American Maple back. The
tailpin area reveals artistic ebony inlay and fine original detail. Everything
about this violin articulates quality. The craftsmanship is detailed and fine,
the purfling beautifully inlaid, the varnish original and fiery, and the scroll
beautifully carved. This violin is a excellent example of early 20th century
American violin making of the Midwestern school.
The violin plays very
well and it is well set up and ready for
immediate play. All the repairs were expertly done and the violin has been very
well maintained. The strings are new Thomastik Dominants. It has a
well carved and fitted bridge, well adjusted pegs that match, hold, and turn
easily, and a properly fitted soundpost. The bass bar was replaced in 2009. The violin is ready for immediate
I have provided many
detailed photos from different angles in an attempt to capture the look of this
violin. This is one case where, despite my best efforts, the photographs fall
short of representing the true beauty and gorgeous wood. As beautiful as this
violin is however, it's beauty is matched by it's tone. It has a full rich
sound; dark but sweet and clear with ringing overtones, and a purity of sound
that makes it very rewarding to play. This is not a penetrating, highly focused
sound, but a warm, sweet and mournful tone, with layers of color and
opportunity for expression.
This violin has a very
clean and warm tone, with pronounced ringing overtones and a rich, powerful
feel. There is no scratchiness, harshness or shrill edginess to the sound but
just a bell-like clarity and resonant quality. The violin has a great pure and
well-centered tone. The overtones bloom
effortlessly when the violin is played in tune, and it has a loud and full
sound that quickly fills even the largest of rooms. This is a violin that makes
any player sound better and in the hands of a very good player provides
tremendous flexibility, response and layers of complex color to explore. This
is a very good sounding and well-made violin that will thrill any good player,
especially an accomplished expert.
