This sophisticated violin was crafted during Louis Löwenthal's time in Dresden; it is a successful replica of a model by Guarneri.The exceptionally successful atelier owner and instrument merchant, Löwenthal (Lowendall) is said to have made his first attempts at crafting violins during his boyhood in Kaliningrad; His early and intense enthusiasm for making stringed instruments is seen as one reason for the immediate success that Löwenthal enjoyed throughout his professional life. He matured into a good musician, luthier, and bow maker, who opened his own music shop in 1855. He was quickly able to hire many talented assistants and renowned Masters such as Heinrich Knopf, and his business gained international recognition under the name "Lowendall Star Works". The eye-catching work of this particular model features not only delicately inlaid purfling, which extend deep into the corners; but also has an highly arched belly and back. And an excellently worked scroll. The finishing touch to the instrument's visual aesthetics is it's tastefully antiqued, golden-brown varnish with appealing red overtones. The Maple wood selected for the back has an attractive tiger patina and the Spruce top displays tightly grained medullary rays, resulting in a great tone.
