"The Messiah" by Antonio Stradivari. Estimated more than $15,000,000!!
Is this the "Red Stradivarius"? @masamomo The Messiah Stradivarius, 1716 | I would love to hear the tonal potential of this Stradivarius! The tailpiece (replaced after 1716) shows the Nativity of Christ.
The Messiah Stradivarius 1716 - possibly the only Strad exactly as made. The 'Messiah' is in the collection of the Ashmolean museum, Oxford.
Is antiquing supposed to copy the instrument being copied? Specifically the Messiah.
