French circa 1890 “Copie de Stradivarius”

German Violin by Wolff Brothers labelled and dated 1898

A beautiful example from this workshop saved from the hands of a keen amateur who had sought to file down the neck and fingerboard to possibly suit a tiny hand, but making it impossible to be played by an adult.  We took the unusual step on this type of instrument of making a new neck, preserving the original head, and it is now back to it’s former glory, looking and sounding great.
