Labeled “Nicolaus Gagliano Filius / Alexandri fecit Neap. 1730”. This is a fine and characteristic example of Neapolitan violin making from the late 18th century. The tone quality is notable for its fine, sweet and resonant voice. The well restored top and ribs do show the marks of wear and time, but also tell a story of the loving commitment of previous owners to properly maintain this fine violin over many decades. This instrument is well worth the furthering love and devotion of its next caretaker.
