- This composite violin was made in Germany in the 19th century. The unrelated 19th-century German table, with a 20thcentury neck-graft, pegbox and scroll, was added to the back and ribs to create the complete instrument. This violin bears a reproduction Gagliano label and is made of a table of spruce in two pieces, back of maple in two pieces with irregular, mild horizontal figure, ribs of similar maple cut on the slab, grafted maple neck, pegbox and scroll with fine, irregular figure, and a semi-opaque orange-brown varnish.
