3/4 - Fine French violin, approx. 1900
This French 3/4-sized violin is an extremely rare instrument, that was built approx. in the year 1900, presumably in the famous violin making town of Mirecourt. A corresponding label indicates that the violin is one of the sought-after instruments that were built after patterns of Antonius Stradivari; nevertheless, only very few violins especially of this size meet comparable master-standards. The delicately crafted scroll, the small soundholes and the amazing, deeply flamed ribs are full of character. In exceptionally well-preserved condition this violin reveals its age only through very few traces of use and the delicate patina, that determines its noble, antique appearance. We warmly recommend the strong, brilliant sound of this special children‘s violin, that is full of character, suitable for a solistic play. After having been meticulously worked over in our atelier the violin is offered ready to play.
