This interesting violin by Georg Kloz from his later creative period, has a body length of 35.2 cm, which is typical for Kloz.
The violin has a paper copy on the inside of the bottom with the following inscription:
“Georg Kloz in Mitten-wald an der Iser , 1774”.
In addition, there is the following handwritten text on the inside of the floor:
“Racomodèe par D.Nicolas ainè M. Luthier a la Ville Cremone 1790.”
This violin by Kloz has been probably repaired by the famous violin maker from Mirecourt in the Vosges, Didier Nicolas, l´Aine (1757 – 1833). The 3 dark spots on the lower left half of the ceiling are small wood defects. Repair work has not been carried out on this instrument.
This violin comes with a expert opinion by Jean-Jaques Rampal.
