This is an early twentieth century German da Salo model with the celebrated double purfling and ornamental inlay on the back. Like the original there is one less turn to the scroll.
These violins have long been favored by fiddlers for their robust tone. This violin would also make a good orchestral violin, enabling one to be heard above the din! Attractive orange-brown varnish on a gold ground. Length of back: 14 1/8 inches.
