"This reputable violin known for its excellent tonal quality and power, was made by Antonio Stradivari in 1716. In 1855, it was owned by Madame Booth an English lady who tried to assemble a quartet of Stradivari instruments for her children. Otto Booth, her son, sold this instrument in 1889 and this violin has since been used as concert violin for performances throughout the world."
