A fine Violin

both

A nice Violin.
It came from the estate of Henry J. Dennis
of Sheridan, WY. He played, made and repaired violins
there, but didn't make this one said his daughter - who
sold me the instrument.

No maker's label, just a repair notice by Mr. Dennis from
1970. He died about 1974. It's fairly old, with German accessories.

Since these photos were taken a few scratches in the varnish,
and a slight separation of the top have been repaired.

It weighs 14.5oz; length 14.065"; upper bout 6.675";
middle bout 4.5"; lower bout 8.25"; fingerboard 10.75"; and nut
to bridge 13.25". It has an unusual, finely-carved scroll in the
style of Maggini.
