Ernst’s Violin Case

Here’s a photograph of the case which features in Bulwer Lytton’s memoir (Sources:3) and a poem by Madame Ernst (HWE:272). It’s currently owned by the Californian violinist and collector Joe Gold (see People), and this picture was taken on a recent trip it took to the South of France:

Ernst Violin Case

It’s said to be a copy of Paganini’s case, although that was in red leather rather than green. Thanks to Robert Waechter for forwarding the photograph.
