1/2 - French 1/2 violin, "Copie de Stradivarius"

This 1/2 violin was built around 1900 in one of the great Mirecourt workshops, presumably J.T.L. or Laberte. The high gloss varnish is of the dark red color which is typical for Mirecourt instruments; the label "Copie de Stradivarius" indicates that the violin is one of the famous instruments following Stradivari patterns, which are highly sought-after products from the capital of French violin making. With its high age it developed fine craquele, accentuating the elegant appearance of the lovely soundholes and the accurate purfling with an antique note. Our violin maker gave the instrument a completely new setup, with new pegs, a Wittner tailpiece, new Pirastro strings, a new bridge and soundpost. Its sound is full of character, warm, clear and strong.
