Italian violin by Jacob Horil, ca.1750

A very fine old Italian violin made by Jacob Horil in Rome ca.1750, branded on the lower ribs under the button with the maker’s brand. This is a wonderful instrument made on a very interesting personal model (similar to the viola of The Chi-Mei Culture Foundation). It is in a good state of preservation. The sound of this instrument is of a marvelous character and depth, with a superb power, evenness and immediate response. The length over the back is 35.6cm.
