The violin that belonged to Albert Einstein.<br />
<br />
A violin that belonged to genius Albert Einstein who later gifted it to a janitor's son has emerged for sale for £110,000.<br />
<br />
Einstein fled Nazi Germany for America in 1933 and his arrival in the US was heralded by a cabinet maker who made a violin for Einstein.<br />
<br />
The genius later gave it to the young son of a janitor at Princeton University.<br />
<br />
It has been in the same family ever since and has now been put up for sale at auctioneers Bonhams.
