|PETER BALTZERSON 1876-1938|
Peter Baltzerson was born in Tjotta, Norway, and died in Boston in 1938. Baltzerson moved to Boston in the late 1800s where he worked in building construction and built violins as a hobby. He later worked for O. H. Bryant, then established his own shop, and is known for the consistently beautiful tone quality of his violins.
This stunning violin has a one-piece back of prominent flame and orange-red varnish shaded on an amber ground. The tone quality is heavenly - a glorious and rich, full sound.
