Maker: Pietro Floriani
Region: Italy
Year: C.1858
Tone: Mellow, Warm, Sweet




Very interesting violin labeled Pietro Floriani made in Riva Italy around 1858. The antique appearance of this outstanding 18th century Italian violin is determined by the luminous and rich oil-based varnish and the striking flaming of the maple back. With its beautifully structured surface, this fine Italian violin of the Venice school is distinguished and full of character. It bears an undecipherable label, as well as some signatures inside. This remarkable 18th century Italian violin was carefully handcrafted and made from Italian tonewoods featuring optimal sound qualities. The intensely colored oil varnish is of a deep rich red color, with beautiful patination. It was richly applied on a golden-yellow ground and has faded at the common places. Its warm, rounded, mellow voice is compelling with a rich Italian character that is precise, singing, somewhat mellow with a sweet note.
