AMATI (Nicolas Amatus)


Recommended Posts

I also have a violin which has a Nicolaus Amatus fecit Cremona 16 label inside the violin. I sent several pictures of this violin to Christie's Auction house. A representative stated that the violin was one made in Germany around the 1800's and its estimated value was $1000.

: I have A violin that is also marked Nicolaus Amatus fecit in Cremona #1645 and would appreciate any body that could

: tell me about the person that made it or any thing about it

::Mine sounds like many of yours except for one thing. On the black part below the fingerboard, where the tuners are, there is a rose made of a stone. Probably abalone. It is dated 1637. It's in the origional case with the bows. The bows have the same stone, plus silver. The label reads "Nikolaus Amatus fecit in Cremonia 1637". It is all printed except the 37. The stone is why I think it's unique. Can anyone help me on this?

We have just unearthed a violin from my mothers attic which also has Nicolaus Amatus Cremonen. The rest of the label (which is very faint) appears to read:

filius antonii Frepps, fecit il. The violin is an amber colour and in very good order - despite looking very "handled" along the fingerboard.

Am I looking at an original or a German copy?
