Description

A classic example of the great Venetian’s work: his own pattern with glorious varnish and individual wood selection. Includes measurements

‘The violin’s hollowed edge is characteristic and the purfling is swept across the corner in Stradivari fashion. The f-holes are typical of the Cremona-influenced Tyrolean makers – based on the Brothers Amati but wider and upright in stance. Over the wood Gofriller laid the most supple varnish, which often seems to have no substance at all but is steeped into the wood, turning it a deep burgundy colour. Beneath the dark patina there is a slight rose-madder tint to the red.’ – John Dilworth in the December 2000 issue of The Strad
