Andrea Amati c.1566 (copy) Baroque Violin
This instrument is a reconstitution of the small violin made by Andrea Amati around 1566. The existing instrument is set-up as a modern instrument. But this one has been made as a baroque version. As it was when built by Andrea Amati. This is my interpretation as we don't have the accessories any more, and I did not reproduce the decoration existing on the real instrument. This is a small violin, its body length is only 341mm.
On the following pictures you can see the finished instrument and a few steps of during its making (click on the picture to zoom in) :
