'Stradivarius' 3/4 Violin
Imitations of the original Stradivarius labels began to be manufactured throughout Europe in the 19th century. The labels were not at all intended to be a trick or forgery but actually to pay homage the violin maker even a specific instrument.The labels were meant to indicate that the violin was in the fashion of Stradivari’s work and that the size and dimensions are copied from a particular instrument made during a particular year.
This violin was made in Germany - it alludes to be from the Baroque periods with various pretend alterations particularly to the peg box to show the ‘conversion’ from Baroque to a classical instrument.
