French violin after J.B. Vuillaume, ca. 1910

This beautiful antique French violin is an exceptionally beautiful instrument from the famous violin making town Mirecourt, where it was crafted approx. 1910 as a reference to the great French master Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume. It bears a J.B. Vuillaume model label and was built presumably in the renowned workshops of JTL as one of their trade quality instruments. The strong, powerful sound is an impressive demonstration of the violin´s good quality, as well as solid craftmanship such as the medium high arching of the top that features gentle fluting. The two-piece back is a highly individual work with very interesting flames, decorated by shining, orange-brown colored varnish with tasteful antique touches. This violin is very well preserved and features an amazingly powerful tone at the price, a French violin of a character, that is completely unimpressed by many traces from playing. Like all Corilon violins the instrument was worked over completely by the experienced luthiers in our workshop and is offered crackfree and undamaged, in excellent playing condition. It unfolds its exquisite sound with immediate response, a voice that is bright, mature and rich in overtones, radiant and clear, but also voluminous and well-balanced across all strings.
