George Gemunder I, Boston, MA, 1848


Violin: 53994

Original label

Back: Two-piece


Notes:

"The violin illustrated above bears Gemunder's original label and is without doubt among the first if not the first violin made by Gemunder in this country. This violin also bears an inscription "London exhibition prize violin 1851".

According to the charming book published by the maker, "In 1851, when the first exhibition of London took place, Gemunder sent a quartet of bow instruments, in imitation of Stradivarius". We believe that the above violin is indeed one of these instruments."
