This violin, which was made around 1931 and bears a label from the well-known Markneukirchen-based company, comes from the traditional Schuster & Co. Its model is based on Stradivarius. The golden-brown varnish over a light background emphasizes the strong flames of the two-piece maple back. The violin is in good condition with traces on the varnish that indicate an instrument that was often played. The instrument has no damage worth mentioning and has been overhauled by us.

Played by Mr.Christoph Henschel.

French violin, Grand Prix Paris 1931

This French violin was made around 1920 by an unknown hand, probably in Mirecourt. This French violin, with its fine visual appearance as well as its excellent musical properties, proves that even instruments without an indication of origin from the famous French violin-making town were of high quality.

Two slips of paper are glued into the instrument:

Januarius Gagliano filius
Alexandri fecit Neap 1770

with a handwritten note “Copie d’apres” – the violin maker wanted to document that the model was based on this master.

The second note is :
Grand Prix Paris 1931
This is how the instruments and works of art presented at this colonial exhibition in Paris were labeled.

The violin is sized between 4/4 and 7/8. This guarantees relaxed playing. But the sound is full and powerful. The finely flamed maple is clearly visible through the transparent red-brown varnish. The instrument is in very good condition with overhauled playing technique.

Played by Mr.Christoph Henschel.
