"What makes this violin in some ways a transitional instrument is the arching, which is fuller and stronger around the edges than in Stradivari's previous work, and far more o than the earliest Amatise violins. The corners are also reduced a little in length, giving slightly more weight to the outline in general, again strengthened by the purfling, which is like that of the 'Archinto': broader and sharper in the black lines compared with the lightly traced inlay of the 'Arditi'."
