Melvin Goldsmith, Purleigh 2006

Melvin Goldsmith completed his first violin in 1980 at the young age of 12. Goldsmith went on to receive a prestigious sponsorship from the English Crafts Council. His work is based on the style, methods, and materials of the classic 17th and 18th century makers. This beautifully antiqued Stradivari model violin has amber varnish and a colorful tone. The top is made from two pieces of spruce with narrow to medium grain. The back is made from two pieces of maple with medium width flame descending from the center.  Stock #128/14.
