violin is in mint and pristine original condition with no repairs or damages.
There have been no damages or repairs anywhere. The violin is entirely original
with its original varnish in almost perfect condition. The few scratches and
nicks are small, inconsequential and simply provide some hint as to its 90
years of age. The violin has been played, and there are some very minor nicks
and scratches from use, but that's it! The corners are all intact and not
chipped, and there are very few minor nicks and scratches. The violin has some
age but is very clean and fresh in appearance. This violin is gorgeous and in

violin is exceptional from the choice of special and superbly figured woods to
very fine carving and gorgeous artistic execution. This is really a beautifully made
violin-certainly among the very best German violins of this period. Now I am not just blowing smoke here. First of all, I guarantee it. Then, check out the cut and finish of the f
holes. Notice the subtle fluting on the
lower wing, the classic placement, the small delicate nicks, the angled and
detailed cuts. Check out the round and even button showing wear from decades of
heavy use. Look at the cleanly defined
corners, the flawless inlaid purfling, and the beautiful symmetry of the
scroll. This is no run-of-the-mill
factory production fiddle, but a top-grade, flagship example of the best of
Markneukirchen violin making of the pre-war years.
This violin has a
tone as warm, rich and complex as any top violin. It has excellent power,
brilliant clarity and superb response. The tone is very powerful and loud,
superbly responsive with great dynamic range. But most of all the quality of
the tone is like liquid velvet-warm and rich, soft and mellow. But this is a
wolf in lamb's clothing. With the slightest increase in bow pressure the violin
responds with a huge, powerful and penetrating voice, never losing its warm,
soulful and mellow character. Oh, this
is a very exciting violin to play, and whoever is wise enough to choose it and
win this violin will have a lifelong companion in music. This violin is definitely a keeper, and the
