Paul Knorr School Violin, 1930, Markneukirchen

This violin’s sweet and clear tone will be appreciated by the sensitive player, especially in performance with collaborators. This is a finely made violin, based on a Stradivari pattern, by the respected 20th century maker, Paul Knorr. The back is one piece of flamed maple, ascending from treble side to bass side. The top is of clear grained spruce of medium width, with well-defined grain. Varnish is very high quality, typical of this maker, in medium-light brown over a golden ground.

Paul Knorr, born in 1882, studied violinmaking with Dölling. Working in Berlin and Breslau, he established himself in the Markneukirchen workshop of F & R Enders in 1918. Starting in 1921, Knorr became an independent maker. His work is of a very high level of craftsmanship, highly respected for wood and material selection and following the patterns, approach and varnishing of the Italian Cremonese masters.
