Vintage 4/4 Full Size Violin with leather covered wood Case and Bow marked TOURTE.
This violin is a Copy of a Stradivarius and has the original label inside reading: "Special Model Antonius Stradiuarius Artist Model" with Ludwig's signature stamp across it and also has a small Leaf Garland "L" logo. Our research indicates this was possibly German made, circa 1920's.
The Violin has a 2-piece maple flame or tiger maple back - end matched at the center, and has a similar grain maple scroll. The top is straight grain spruce, and the varnish is umber or orange red on golden. This looks like it should be ready to play. There is some edge wear and surface soil, but there are NO cracks or separations. One of the tuning pegs looks like a replacement. Other than that, and needing a cleaning- we see no issues. We don't play so can't attest to how it sounds or performs, but it is a beauty.There are MANY detail photos below this description so you can see just how nice this is.
The Bow has the name TOURTE stamped into one end, and inlaid MOP on the frog. It is most likely a copy of a Tourte, from about the same era as the violin. Unclear who actually made these bows (Original Tourte bows are not marked like this, and would have gold trim), but this type was sold by dealers like Carl Fischer, Lyon & Healy, and Tonk Brothers. No cracks or repairs we can find.
The fitted Wood Case is covered with black leather, lined with crushed velvet, and has a satin cover blanket for the violin. Storage for 2 bows inside the top of the lid. The case has leather loss and 2 of the 3 latches are broken. We do not have a key.
