Classical Violin: C.G. Schlosser, Klingenthal 1779 – DV317 – (price $7,200)
The Schlosser family of violin makers was active in Klingenthal, Germany in the 18th century. This violin is branded on the back under the button “CGS” and is labelled “G. Schlosser, Klingenthal 1779”. It has all its original essential parts. The Dipper workshop replaced the neck and bass bar and made a set-up appropriate to the classical period. Its ample Strad pattern lends itself to a confident sound that projects easily with darker colors.
