Correctly labelled and branded internally, dated 1942 and in excellent condition, this violin is from the estate of a professional player. Well-played in its early years, more recently set up here in Scotland after a long rest, it's just raring to go and sounding pretty impressive.

Beautiful oil varnish, hand made ebony purfling, immaculate workmanship and modelling, pristine interior...it truly is difficult to fault this fiddle, produced two years before Gartner's death in 1944, at the age of eighty. A true connoisseur, he had amassed a fine collection of Italian violins, from which, no doubt, he took his models.
