In the world, over the last two centuries almost everything has been improved to create a product that is more efficient, more reliable and a better version than it’s original. However, the violin has not. 
The violins of the past do not increase in value because they are either old fine violins or because they were owned by hands that has made history of music. They have value because no one has been able to reinvent a better violin.  No one has achieved that perfection anymore. A violin tells an incredible, magical story.
It’s the only thing in the world that blends culture and technology in itself.
To own an old fine stringed instrument is the beginning of an exclusive dream.
