Steffen Nowak, Maker of fine Violins, Violas and Cellos in baroque and modern style

A Violin Richard Tobin, London, ca. 1820 (for Lockey Hill)

A nice violin by Richard Tobin, made for Lockey Hill, London, ca. 1820.
This 'petit' sometimes also called 'Lady's size' violin would be perfect if you are looking for a very comfortable playing instrument.
The back measures 350mm, the stop length 192mm and the string length is 327mm.
The full and warm sound belies the smaller dimensions of this classical Tobin violin.
As often seen with Tobins instruments this has a one piece front, the beautiful figured one piece maple back also typical of Tobins and Lockey Hill instruments. Price: £15,000
