Old Composite Violin, Possibly Italian, Philippus Horil, 1761 For Sale

Old Composite Violin, Possibly Italian, Philippus Horil, 1761

An 18th century composite violin labeled:

Philippus Horil fecit Romae

Anno Domini 1761

I have not been able to find any reference to a maker by this name and therefore believe the label to be spurious, although it appears to be printed on the correct paper and with the correct typeset for the period. The scroll and neck, of very highly flamed wood andaverage workmanship,are not original. Giventhe scroll'ssharp, unworn appearance, it is probably of early 20th century German origin.

The corpus is of small proportions, highly arched. Ribs and back of matching, lightly-flamed wood. The table, of medium grain, has had numerous repairs--one crack visible in the picture just to the treble side of the tailpiece area, has old glue visible at its margins. There is a rather large soundpost patch to the top and a visible graft lineruns around the perimeter of the top--either half-edge work or an attempt to match the top of one violin to the back and ribs of another. There has been considerable over-varnishing to the instrument and it has a very highly polished appearance.

The violin is built on an internal mould.

The violin will require restoration and setup.

Return it if you don't like it, but be aware that shipping charges will not be refunded and you will be responsible for arranging and paying for return postage and handling. See return policy section for details.
