Carlo Giuseppe Oddone, Turin 1922

This violin, a Guarneri model, is an excellent example of Oddone’s work. The scroll is cut in the distinctive style of Oddone and the chamfer is outlined in black, a feature that is common to Turin-made instruments. The top is made of two pieces of narrow grained spruce, and the back is made from a single piece of maple with medium flame. The violin has a rich, penetrating tone with excellent clarity and brilliance. It is branded “C. Oddone Torino” at the endpin, neckblock, and endblock. The varnish is of a beautiful orange-brown color.
