Interesting 1800’s Violin - Labeled Master Art copy of Gagliano
This very interesting violin has a John Juzek label that is not original to this violin. It does seem to be modeled after the narrow bodied Niccolo Gagliano violins. It looks like the work of an individual and was probably made in the mid to late 1800’s. This violin is very easy and satisfying to play. It is well worth taking a close look at.
