15" Kloz school unlabelled viola, mid-late 18th century

SKU: S398

This beautiful little viola has a warm, resonant tone on all strings, including the C string – a remarkable quality given that its body length is just short of 15 inches (380). The belly is very finely grained, a feature which is typical of Mittenwald instruments of this period, and the amber-coloured oil varnish harmonises with the wood on all surfaces. Elegant, narrow edges compliment a small, characterful scroll.
