Mid 19th Century Italian Violin - Mantua Region

A most interesting violin from 19th century. This violin may seem roughly made, with somewhat uneven proportions, a slightly larger pattern and open f-holes. Yet it has a fluid and integrated grace, reflecting the spontaneity of an earlier era. The back is of one piece, of slight grain, with medium width flame descending from treble to bass. The top is of spruce with medium width grain. The varnish is a deep red brown over amber ground, with considerable wear, but in fine condition.

Mantua's fame in the violin world began with Pietro Guarneri, in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, along with his followers, Balestrieri and Camilli. This particular violin bears the label of Giuseppe Dall'Aglio and its workmanship bears many of the characteristic traits of the region.
