This fine Cremonese Italian violin is in a near perfect state of preservation, and still bears the maker's undisturbed original label. The harmonic box is without a crack to be found anywhere. The original varnish appears to have been french polished or covered with a clear top coat. It was last known to have passed through the shop of the eminent Italian luthier / archetier, Signor Giovanni Longiaru (1886-1970), who worked in New York City. The bridge with the violin is stamped GIOVANNI LONGIARU to the front and back. As shown below, Mr. Longiaru was an accomplished violinist and may have even owned this instrument. However, we have no proof that this was the case. Attached are scans of a brief biological treatise written by Andrew Dipper, and paid advertisements he placed in trade magazines circa 1922. Any reasonable offer will be considered, thank you.Longiaru-biographical-by-Andrew-Dipper.jpgImage Enlarger
