Antonio Stradivari (violin) Phillips – 1702

This instrument, although well known among the experts, particularly those in France, is published here for the first time. It belongs to Stradivari’s most storied time, the so-called ‘Golden Period’ and it bears an original label reading ‘Antonius Stradivarius Cremonensis Faciebat Anno 1702’, of which the last three digits have been rendered in the Cremonese master’s hand.
