A selection of letters The Strad receives each month from its readers around the world: November 2020 issue
I loved reading about violin maker Maria Sandner in the August picture story (News, page 16). Good on her for making miniature violins in lockdown. They look spectacularly beautiful and expertly made. In the spirit of sharing, I thought readers of The Strad might enjoy this photo of my own antique miniature violins (above), which I have been collecting for over 50 years. As well as 1/16 and 1/32 instruments, I also have one which is 1/64 size. Tiny indeed. You might spot four Mittenwald violins (one of which is a Neuner) and another by Paul Hilaire.
