This wonderful violin is a very characteristic example of the makers work and bears the original label, dated 1754.
The back is made from two matched pieces of maple, marked with a deep horizontal curl of medium width. The ribs are similar, while the scroll shows a somewhat smaller curl.
The front is also of two matched pieces of straight grained spruce with extremely fine growth in the centre becoming broader in the bouts.
The varnish is of typical light golden brown tint.
The violin is presented in a beautifully restored condition and ready to be played and will come with a certificate of authenticity from John Dilworth. Please feel free to come into the shop to try it or contact for further information.
