Unlabelled violin attributed to Whitmarsh

SKU: S606

This charming, unlabelled violin has historically been attributed to “Whitmarsh”, and it is quite possible that it came from the workshop of either Emanuel Whitmarsh, or his son Edwin who is also know to have imported decent European instruments in the white and finished them with his own varnish.  The tone is smooth and warm with a lovely, elegant character that will delight players who want to avoid any brashness.  The maple used for the back is cut on the slab giving the narrow frame a soft rippling appearance.
