French violin from Mirecourt, approx. 1900

This good French violin was built in the renowned violin making town of Mirecourt in the Vosges mountains. It is recommendable choice for adult musicians who love to play an instrument with a strong, voluminous sound. The violin is well-preserved and was crafted in the 1900s after a proven Stradivari model; the distinctive scroll is the clear quick work of an experienced hand. The antiqued varnish is light brown colored and bears and some slight traces from playing, that are common for an instrument that obviously was a joy to play. Our expert violin makers completely worked over this violin, that is offered crackfree in very good condition ready to expresses its large, dark but clear and warm, resonant voice.
