This is a factory workshop violin with has only two corner plates, showing it was made with an outside mold. A good-looking violin with a strong evaluation. Nice warm tone combining exceptional balance and resonance.
Early 1900’s Alban O. Schmidt Violin!
The condition is very good. There is what looks like a pair of short cracks going up from the bass-side f-hole, but I am fairly sure it is just varnish touch-up.
Set up with D’Addario Helicore strings with four fine-tuners.
