A Violin by Pietro Antonio Dalla Costa

Treviso, c1760

A strong follower of the Brothers Amati, Dalla Costa is a great name amongst the makers of Venice and its surroundings. This violin displays a well-thought-out grand pattern model, and varnish of exceptional quality. In the past the instrument has probably been slightly altered around the F holes, presumably to give it the stronger sound it now projects.

Length of back: 35.4cm
