Item specifics

Condition: Used Instrument: Violin
Johannes Jais was the son of Franz Jais. He used tickets identical to the one in this violin, which runs 'Joannes Jais me fecit Bulsani in Tyroli 1775' (Bulsani is the Latinised version of the town of Bolzano or Bozen). Like Mathias Albanus, Joahan Jais (1752-1781) worked in Bozen, a Tyrolean town on the southern slopes of the Alps in present-day Italy. His works show many of the characteristics of the Tyrolean School, which at this point was also very much under the influence of the Italians. Typical for this 'school' is the very careful selection of timber; beautiful hazel spruce for the belly and bird's eye maple for the back and ribs, although this particularly nice example has ribs and back of narrow-flamed maple. A similar violin, made in the same year (1775) was auctioned by Sotherby's in March 1990, with an estimated value of £7,000-10,000 and sold for £6,600. Today, you would expect to pay somewhere between £12,000-14,000 for a nice example. This is a really fine violin, originally made as a 'baroque' instrument and later converted to a 'modern' violin by replacing the neck (as was quite normal 'conversion' practice) whilst retaining the original scroll. The conversion scroll 'graft' is clearly shown. The Dimensions are as follows: Length of back 13.94" Upper Bout Width 6.30" Width across C Bout 4.20" Lower Bout width 7.87" Rib Height 1.22" Stop Length 13.07" The original makers ticket can be seen inside the violin which reads Joannes Jais me facit Bulfani in Tyroli 1775. Written on the inside of the back, faintly in pencil, to the left of the upper block, is a hand-written inscription contained within an ellipse... it is barely visible, This is a very fine example and has had some restoration work done to it but what and when I am afraid i don't know a lot about. I will try and answer as many questions as possible. Will happily send overseas. Item will be sent well wrapped and fully insured. Although I have a buy it now of £1200 I am happy to accept offers on it.
