|Nicholas Amati copy||Beautiful, quality rare viola. Nicholas Amati copy.
Label inside the body confirms this and I have tried to show that in the pictures. This viola is rare, please note it is smaller than full size. Measures approx 25 inches from top of scroll to bottom and 15 inches from neck to bottom. As I have always been small for my age, my music teacher at the time luckily managed to source this smaller viola for me. I have owned it now for approximately 35 years, so there is alot of sentimental value attached to it but I haven't played it since my daughter was born and she is now 13! I had it valued a few years ago by the wonderful musician who owns my local string shop. He loved it and played it and I have never heard such a beautiful tone, it brought tears to my eyes and I couldn't bring myself to sell it at the time but unfortunately I can no longer put this off and I must put emotion to one side and sell it. It is time for someone else to love it as I have and enjoy bringing out that magical tone. It was valued at £1700 so offers around this please.
