Oswald Möckel, Berlin’s esteemed maker, left an indelible mark on this elegant violin, as few instruments convey their creator’s “handwriting” as clearly as this one does. Möckel was renowned for crafting exceptional replicas, primarily inspired by the old Italian masters. The selection of beautiful, high-quality tone woods exudes a luminous quality beneath the enchanting golden-yellow varnish.
