A violinist has been reunited with his Stradivarius violin, worth million of euros, after a fellow violinist borrowed it and left it on a train.
The Telegraph reported that the precious Stradivarius violin, one of around 650 violins made by Italian master craftsman Antonio Stradivari and still in existence, was handed in to the lost-property office at Bern station, Switzerland, on Sunday.
The violin's owner had lent it to a fellow musician who left the valuable instrument behind on a train on Friday afternoon. According to Genevalunch police believe that the man who took the violin from the train is the man who returned it.
Stadivarius violins are regarded as immaculate works of art and can fetch millions of dollars at auction.
