Giovanni Battista Guadagnini, Turin, 1771, the 'Baron Hermann'
Bearing its original label.
Length of back: 35.4 cm
Notes:"This violin was sold twice by W.E. Hill & Sons and derives its name from a previous owner, the Baron Hermann. The power and complexity of its sound is compelling, typical of Guadagnini violins. Because of an extremely well-repaired back crack, it is priced well below market. "
