František Karel Kříž was a maverick Czech violin maker obsessed with the pursuit of excellent sound. This violin exemplifies his best work – it uses rather plain wood with great tonal properties, the model is idiosyncratic (long f-holes and flat arching), and the varnish is very lightly applied. It’s a loose copy of a Luigi Fabris – the f-holes in particular seem to reference this maker.
Length of back 35.4cm, stop 130/192cm, total length 58.7cm
