18th century violin labelled Carcassi

Labelled Carcassi – presently undergoing restoration.


The estate of a professional player from Holland who moved to Australia and being sold on behalf of her family.  She bought the instrument from Frederick Lindeman in Amsterdam who declared it by Carcassi as per the label.  However, recent opinion in London is divided as to whether it is even Italian, with suggestion it may be Klingenthal school.  Therefore we will not be selling it as a Carcassi until we have learned more about the instrument.  Presently undergoing significant restoration, the price will be determined when the instrument is ready and more certainty obtained as to where and by whom it was originally made.
