Notes:

"It is rare to find a complete instrument by one of the sons of Antonio Stradivari made before their father’s death. This splendid violin by Omobono Stradivari shares its powerful, bold form and distinctly flamed back of oppio with several distinguished violins labelled by his father in 1727 which were clearly made from the same log."
