The violin prices for the study were based on the very conservative violin price valuations published yearly in the “Taxe der Streichinstrumente” by Albert Fuchs. Stock market information was retrieved from the published indexes. Treasury Bond information was retrieved from statistics as released by the Federal Board of Governors.
The conclusion of the study is evident. Rare violins as an investment have performed far better than all other investments explored in the study. However the top priced violins made by Antonio Stradivari and Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù were excluded from the study because only very little data was available on the sales of those instruments to be of any use for statistical purposes.
