Description

A remarkably preserved violin by the most popular non-Italian maker of his day, and one of the few Classical violins that has never been converted to modern playing specifications. No similar violin is known to exist from the ‘accepted’ Cremonese school. Remarkably, after more than 300 years, it retains its original, unaltered fingerboard and bass-bar. Includes measurements

‘The superb curving lines, the sculptural depth and the delicate craftsmanship of Stainer’s instruments are the epitome of the Baroque. I would maintain that in this respect alone, Stainer at his best comes closer than any other classical maker to the Amati ideal’ – Roger Hargrave, The Strad, April 1990
