A Fine German Violin, Saxony circa 1800A Fine German Violin, Saxony circa 1800A Good German Violin, Saxony circa 1800A Good German Violin, Saxony circa 1800

A German violin most likely from Klingenthal, with an apocryphal Amati label. Dendrochronological analysis of the table reveals a latest date of 1771, with good correlations to other Saxon (and some Mittenwald) violins. The wood used for this instrument is particularly good, close and straight-grained spruce with fine fleck, and a very clean quarter-sawn back with a subtle upwards flame. The scroll is unusually good, but perhaps not original.

Length of back 36cm, stop 130/195 mm, total length 59.2cm
