A violin by Giovanni Battista Grancino

Milan, circa 1700

The design of this fine violin is firmly rooted in Amati geometry, and closely follows the smaller of Nicolo’s two models, significantly narrower than the celebrated ‘Grand Pattern’. The arch is of the full, rounded type, the edges neatly worked and strongly channelled. The soundholes are upright, lightly fluted and with narrow Amatise wings. The scroll is beautifully concentric and cleanly executed. This instrument sounds full and rich with wonderful focus suitable for solo and chamber music.
