A Violin by Alessandro Mezzadri

Ferrara, 1701

Mezzadri is one of the most under-appreciated makers of great importance in the classic Italian violin making tradition. This instrument displays excellent modelling and arching construction. The choice of wood, ground and varnish are all of the highest quality, and comparable to the finest great makers of Italy.
