A violin by Pietro Guarneri of Venice

Venice, 1720-25

This important violin has provenance stretching back over a hundred years, having been seen by Alfred Hill in the early 20th century in Paris. It is a fascinating early example by this maker, drawing strongly on the Cremonese influence of his father, Giuseppe Filius AndreƦ, yet unmistakeably Venetian, with its generous covering of rich red original varnish. This violin is truly outstanding, both tonally and in terms of preservation. It would make a superb concert instrument for any musician and would be a fitting addition to a fine collection.
