Label: Christianus Franciscus Partl / Fecit Wien 1771
Jacob Horil was a native of Bohemia, resided in Viennna from 1720 onwards and settled down in Rome ca. 1740. His style retains the overall characteristcs of his Northern Provenance, abstaining from incorporating Italianisms. As a matter of fact, this violin, with its swung scroll and short, round sound holes harkens back to the work of the Viennese School.
