This violin, built according to the Guarneri model, was designed by Max Schuster in 1942. He was born in Markneukirchen in 1887 and worked with Albin Voigt, Henri Gütter in Breslau, Carl Niedt in Würzburg, Th Kurth in Berlin and Dr. Eugen Gärtner in Stuttgart, until he started his own business in 1918. He was known for his carefully executed repairs.


The instrument has a divided, very intensely flamed back and frames. The amber-colored lacquer, which is well preserved, gives the violin a noble character.
