This is one of the short production violins developed and hand assembled by Mario Maccaferri in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. The serial number listed in the description(4950) does not line up with the number produced. A sticker at the base of the neck shown in the images reads “585”.
While not visible in the images each of the plastic violins contained a label with the year and serial number.
It is exciting to see this instrument among the other items at the museum.
