D.M. DeSilva violin, 1908, Washington D.C.

$4,500.00
Code: VN~W91-1

Description: This D.M. DeSilva violin bears a printed label that reads:

 

Copy of Stradivarius

D.M. DeSilva, Maker,

Washington, D.C.

No. 15. Sept. 8th, 1908

 

Description:

This violin has a pleasantly mellow, warm and sweet sound, which is even across all four strings.

The back is formed from two pieces of quarter-cut maple, marked by narrow-width flame, which slants downward from the center joint toward the flanks. The wood of the ribs and scroll matches that of the back. The two-piece spruce top has straight, very narrow-width grain that widens toward the flanks. The instrument is covered with a dark brown varnish, which is shaded to reveal a golden brown ground. The violin is in very good condition.

 

Measurements:

                                    Length                        35.5 cm

                                    Upper Bouts                16.6 cm

                                    Middle Bouts               11.3 cm

                                    Lower Bouts                20.8 cm

 

Mellow, warm, sweet, even.
