$22,000.00
Code: VN~T25-2

Fine European Violin - Anton Thirr, Pressburg 1824

Dark, complex, colorful

 

The violin maker Anton Thirr is a name in the history of violin making whose historical rank is completely beyond doubt. Born in the Bavarian town of Halblech near Füssen, he was a relative of Johann Georg Thirr and likely learned in his Viennese workshop before moving to Pressburg around 1750. He worked there until his death in 1788 and the shop was then inherited by his son Anton Thirr Jr. This violin is a stunning example of careful study and strong generational ties to the craft.

Expertly crafted, the maple chosen for the two piece back displays handsome medium-narrow flame that slants downward from the center joint. Similarly, the fine grain of the two piece spruch top is beautifully accented by the varnish. The violin is covered in a warm amber varnish, and has been antiqued and heavily shaded to reveal a lovely golden ground underneath.

A fine and delicate 19th century violin well suitable for demanding players seeking a giving violin with a dark, complex, and colorful sound. In aesthetic and sound alike, a sophisticated instrument that is ready to play.

The label reads: Anton Thirr Pressburg 1824

The violin is in excellent condition.
