We are especially pleased to be able to offer this fine violin by Enrico Ceruti, one of the most important 19th. century Italian violin makers. Grandson of J.B.Ceruti and son of Giuseppe, Enrico began his career with his father at only ten years of age. By the time he was in his late 20’s he had already established a fine reputation among musicians all over northern Italy. He exhibited his instruments in competitions all over Europe and won medals in his native Cremona as well as London and Vienna. This exceptional violin has a clear, dark tone, rich with lots of color.
This violin is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from W.E.Hill & Sons, London dated 1942, reissued in 1954 and a certificate from Rembert Wurlitzer, New York dated 1962.
