Late 19th C cornerless violin.
The idea behind these instruments was to make an elegant and comfortable violin with a few less parts (and therefore a simpler construction process) than a conventional violin.
Internally, identical to conventional instruments, this violin has only two long ribs, with much gentler curves, and requires only a top and bottom block (ie, no corner blocks).
Other than that, it is constructed in exactly the same way as a normal violin. Sweet toned with a particularly good upper register. Looks great and plays very well.
