Restoration of Leopold Widhalm Violin

 

Restoration of a Leopold Widhalm Violin

Here are some before and after photos of a restoration carried out by Olaf Grawert in 1991 to a Leopold Widhalm violin. Leopold Widhalm worked in Nürnberg Germany between 1746 till 1776

 

The top plate needed extensive restoration with a row of cracks underneath the chinrest and on the left f-hole. 

 

 

The f-hole was a challenge with several cracks that needed a lot of cleaning. 

when finished you cannot see that there had ever been damage.
