Violin ID Aegidius Kloz

Recommended Posts

Here another violin, where I am asking for some advice regarding its authenticity and value.


It is labelled


AEgidius Kloz in Mitten

-vvald and der Iser 1783


The 783 in ink and hard to decipher.

The label is almost identical to the one shown here:

(does not have the question marks)


The instrument had a number of fine repairs, including a neck graft done in the French style,

and has been half-edged. All repairs are of outstanding quality.

The instrument is in mind condition, no sound post patch, not even scratched inside.


Body lenght is 348mm, string lenght 316.

Amazing rich and sweet tone, particularly on the G-string.


Here some pictures:

Nice violin for sure, I agree with Jacob however that the worm hole next to the button looks as if you may have an active beetle larvae in there. I would recommend taking whatever steps neccasary to deal with this sooner rather than later..

Amazing how you spotted the worm hole. This was the first thing I had dealt with when I had it abouy a year ago. It was treated with Rentokil and filled in. No activity since.

Does this need regular checking?


Are these Aegidius Kloz violins often relatively small?

And does size in this case affect the value?
