This violin sees something of a departure from Vincenzo’s instruments of the 1790s. Some of the work has become heavier, particularly in the corners and scroll, which intriguingly has similarities to the cello scroll by Joseph, 74621. Like the violin 72869, the back of the lower pegbox is also now rounder and less ‘droopy’. Another feature typical of these later violins is that the purfling mitres in the lower corners often appear to be shorter than those in the upper corners. Willow has been used for the blocks and linings and the C-bout linings are let into the corner blocks. Once again the broad-grained spruce so often used by Vincenzo for his fronts proved impossible to date.
