An interesting composite Violin of the Flemish School c. 1760
This violin bears a label of Hoffmans which looks contemporary but to which we do not attach any significance. The front of the instrument and possible the head are almost certainly the work of W.E. Hill and Sons in the first half of the 20th century. The fingerboard of the modern neck bears a stamped stock number in the format used by Hills. A very nice and unusual instrument in particularly fine condition.
