Vincenzo Panormo was a prominent violin craftsman who introduced the Cremonese style of violin making in London. Panormo belonged to a family of instrumentalists and worked as a luthier in Paris during his early years. In 1789, at the start of the French Revolution, Panormo moved to Dublin to continue his work. The upcoming Fine Musical Instruments Auction, presented by Skinner, highlights a 1789 Panormo violin crafted in Paris. Few examples of Panormo’s violins, which often show the influences of Amati and Stradavarius, have survived. Also showcased are violins by Giovanni Battista Ceruti and a 1962 Gibson ES-350 TDN electric archtop guitar.
The sale will feature musical instruments from the collection of Andy Goessling, a founding member of festival band Railroad Earth. His collection reflects his passion for instruments and their history. The highlights of Goessling’s collection include pre-Columbian flutes, orphaned zithers, and Jazz Age saxophones. A portion of the sale proceeds will benefit MusiCares, assisting people of the music community that are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
