    Full description

    This 1774 Storioni violin has the most traditional Storioni visual, with the almost paralel F-holes slightly angled, opening towards outside from bottom up. The back is greatly preserved and shows an eye-catching attractive varnish wear. This violin highlights are the fine deep carved scroll and its more unfettered elongated f-holes, that show-off the personal interpretation of the instrument's details. It is notable how the free-handling approach promoted such a personal character imprint to this instrument.
