Notes:

"This 1771 violin is something of an eye opener, for it is the earliest Storioni violin known to us. . . . There is hardly anything classic about this instrument, that it essentially a student work which, if anything, reveals how little professional violin making background the 26-year-old Storioni had had. Nonetheless, it bears the unmistakable impress of the Storioni style in its rough modeling, its arching and scroll design, and even its curiously un-Cremonese extra turn to the scroll. Especially notable are the Fs, which slope inward towards the lower openings, a trait which we see well into the 1770s.
