Peter Baltzerson was born in Tjotta, Norway and died in Boston in 1938. Baltzerson moved to Boston in the 1880s where he worked in building construction and built violins as a hobby. He later worked for O. H. Bryant on Huntington Avenue in Boston, then established his own shop. He 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 length of the back measures 350mm, which makes it a comfortable size for those that are looking for a violin on the smaller side with the complete sound of a full-size instrument. The sound is open and warm and the violin is quick to respond.
