- This violin has a high reputation for the tonal quality and was once owned and played by the world famous virtuoso Jascha Heifetz (1902-1987). The owner in the late 1800s, George Hart, named the violin "Dolphin" as its striking appearance and color of its back reminded him of a dolphin. This violin is known as one of the top three violins made by Stradivari along with 1715 "Alard" and 1716 "Messiah".
