David Bailey Rockwell (died c. 1925), though originally from Maine, worked in Boston c. 1878-1895, where he owned various businesses. A self-taught violin maker, he worked at different instrument shops and frequently moved to other cities, including Hartford, Detroit, Chicago, and San Francisco before finally settling in New York.

This violin from 1898 was made while the maker was working in Boston (c. 1878 - 1895). The crystal clear red-brown varnish enhances the impressive figure of the highly-flamed, slab cut maple back. The violin produces a deep, warm and powerful tone, and would be ideal for advanced students or dedicated amatures of all levels.
