Closely related in style to the previous Dublin viola and using seemingly related wood for the front, this violin appears to be inspired by Stradivari’s very early work from around 1670. It displays the larger, slightly oval location pins set well inside the purfling frequently seen in Vincenzo’s earlier work. The substantial edges and large overhang are also typical for this period, as is the slightly ‘droopy’ look of the lower back of the pegbox. Spruce has once again been used for the blocks and linings. This violin retains its original neck, which measures 132.5 mm, and a single nail hole is still evident in the upper block. Like many Panormo instruments, the broad grain of the spruce front provides too few rings to make the dendrochronology report conclusive, but the bass side of the front seems to date from 1717 and the treble side to 1756.
