A rare, fine violin by Albani family, ca. 1750.
ca. 1750.


A rare, fine violin made by a member of Albani family ca. 1750. Mathias Albani considered to be a Tyrolean maker of Bolzano. He was an extraordinary maker, well respected during his life time with instruments highly valued even than. William Henley is indicating that Mathias went to master his skills to the Amati shop in Cremona. This is a very nice instrument made by one of the sons of Mathias ca. 1750. The instrument is very interesting, made with excellent skills on a fine lower arched model with great varnish (comparable with finest Italian instruments of the period). The sound of this instrument is of a high level with superb quality and richness, fine projecting power. This violin is in very good condition for the age, ready to play. The back, ribs and head are in great shape, table has some normal excellent restoration. All parts are original including plenty of great, very beautiful varnish. The length over the back is 35.5 cm.
