Hello! Could someone tell me some information about this 2 violins? A Felix Stärke ( Hamburg, 1924) and a Jacobus Stainer ( with a lion head).
I know that Felix Stärke was primarily a guitar maker based in Hamburg in the 1920’s-40’s. Known for his violin-inspired guitars, with proper f-holes and some models even with violin corners.
The “Stainer” looks like a simple, but well made German trade violin, with some extra adornments. Early-mid 20th century?
I’m trying to find some prices of these 2 violins. The thing of having a different shape or beeing decorated, makes me doubt...
Thank you all.
