The market for fine antique instruments offers unique opportunities for music-lovers. Every violinist or cellist dreams of owning a Stradivarius or a Goffriller and a finite supply helps the compelling investment case.

Violins dominate the market, and the best make hundreds of thousands into millions of pounds, with steady price rises even through the downturn.
