15″ viola labelled ‘Sanctus Seraphin’. £2,800

This lovely viola bearing the label “Sanctus Seraphin, Minensis fecit 1758″ makes a huge sound despite its small size of 15” (380mm). It has delicate red/amber varnish displaying natural wear patterns. There is a restored crack to the front which is common in an instrument of this age and it is otherwise in excellent condition.

It is fitted with Warchal Brilliant strings and a Wittner tailpiece. Please contact Viva Violins if you would like a trial.
