Christian Wilhelm Knopf, circa 1830. A very good example, bearing many of the classic Knopf features.
A pretty Betts violin. One piece back of pleasingly rippled maple. Typical size 14''. Good condition. Made about 1815.
2010. A viola made by Atelier Meteny, A European, hand made instrument made under strict control and designed by the talented Pascal Gilles (V.S.A. prize winner for tone). Very attractive and good sounding instrument. 15 5/8"
Good German cello by Thomsen, made in 1919. Good condition.
Excellent professional sounding cello by Aldo Pagliacci, made in 1973 in Roma. No 44, this instrument has a great powerful tone and has been used by an international soloist.
Fully mounted selected hand made Brazillian bow.
Fine violin by Richard Tobin with excellent workmanship. Slightly small full size model. I suggest that this violin was made for the Lockey - Hill workshop - the back is made of wood usually attributed to the Hill shop and the front and scroll were made with Tobins wood.
A very interesting violin from the begining of the 19th century and probably from Parma. Poplar back, maple ribs and neck, spruce front. This instrument has been reduced in size. Very interesting tone, deceptively powerful, nutty sound. Many old restorations, but is presented in a healthy state.
Rare cello made by Edwin Whitmarsh, son of Emanuel. Edwins work is cleaner and superior to that of his father. This instrument was made in 1932. Condition good. One front crack, some old (repaired) movement to back centre joint.
