Andreas Postacchini

Year: 1860

Region: Italian Violin (Fermo)

Andrea Postacchini was known as the “Stradivari” of the Marches (a region of central Italy).

Andrea became fascinated with violin making after meeting a priest using some primitive tools and thereafter he decided to become a violinmaker. Although he was very much self-taught, Postacchini produced many fine instruments, all with elegant curves and shape.

This 1860 example exhibited a unique application of an extended purfling with 3 black lines intead of the usual 2. The varnish used is also typical of those used by his contemporaries.

Certificate: E.R. Voigt & Son, London 1966
