"The label inside the Habeneck violin states that Stradivari was 91 when it was made and hence it is the latest dated instrument to bear his label. His two sons, Francesco and Omobono, are known to have been assisting in the workshops during the 1730s, possibly alongside Carlo Bergonzi. This may be one of the instruments which were still in Stradivari’s possession at the time of his death in 1737. The violin itself seems to have been built using the 'PG' mould from 1689.. . .
The Habeneck is remarkable for its purity and the meticulous workmanship; certain features, including the cut of the soundholes and scroll, indicate the collaboration of Stradivari’s eldest son, Francesco."
