ORREN V. HEATH 1937 AMERICAN VIOLIN NO. 68 FORT WAYNE: Lifton leather case, 2 bows (Used)
This Orren, V. Heath is an American made violin dating from 1937. The maker was based out of Fort Wayne, Indiana and made only 79 pieces total in his violinmaking career. This piece bearing the makers label is numbered 68. It has a two-piece maple back of narrow curl, the ribs and scroll of medium curl, the spruce top of fine to medium grain, the varnish of red color. This is a characteristic example of the maker’s work. Heath was self-taught, which makes the work even more interesting for its high degree of professional concept, execution and finish. The oil varnish was also his own, and has met with the same fate as many from the era of experimentation in oil varnish formulas by American makers, which is the surface checking, most pronounced in the upper back. Pattern is after Stradivari, modified somewhat with wider dimensions in the upper bouts.
The violin is in good condition overall
In the summer of 2016 this violin was professionally appraised for value as well as some restoration - new strings, new bridge, adjustment of sound post and the like.
I am a bit curious about this instrument.
Is it something that was left in an estate for the org? Who is this Heath person who built the violin? Any relation to "The" Heaths from back in the day when Rutherford was schmoozing with the Coca-Cola Heaths?
