French violin, the Blanchard atelier, 1918 / Emile Boulangeot

This lovely French Blanchard violin comes from a fine background — the internationally renowned atelier of Paul Blanchard in Lyon. The instrument was made in 1918, six years after the death of the much-honoured master. His atelier had been taken over by his successor, Emile Boulangeot, whose works remain in high demand to this day. The influence of the esteemed master had a tangible effect on the aesthetic and acoustic character of the violin, which was patterned after a somewhat broader yet clearly traditional model inspired by Stradivari. The large scroll with its blackened edges is beautifully complemented by the spruce table, which has a moderate grain and a symmetrical beauty to it, and by the maple back with its broad, deep flaming. We received this atelier Blanchard violin free of cracks and carefully set it up in our workshop. This good Blanchard violin is now ready to play, and its only blemish — an older and well-executed repair to the joint on the back — is purely aesthetic. The violin's warm voice full of character is in no way affected by this minor flaw, and the sound is full of mature precision and dark, mellow and warm.
