The back of this violin is formed from a single piece of quarter-cut maple, marked by narrow-width flame, which slants slightly downward toward the treble side. The wood on the ribs and scroll is similar to that of the back. The grain of the two-piece spruce top is straight, narrow, and even.
The instrument is covered with a warm orange-brown varnish, over a pale gold ground. The varnish is antiqued and shaded by the maker. It is in excellent condition.
