3/4 - excellent antique French 3/4 violin

This antique French 3/4 violin is an excellent example for the quality of antique Stradivari copies from the famous violin making town of Mirecourt in the Vosges mountains, where it was crafted approx. 1900. The 3/4 violin features the classical model label „Antonius Stradivarius“ and expresses an individual appearance, that is determined by the delicate scroll and the elegant soundholes full of character. The very luminous golden-orange colored varnish completes this tasteful aesthetic and corresponds well with the expressive traces of use by former generations of musicians. This antique French 3/4 violin was obviously a pleasure to play, and indeed it features a convincingly strong, large sound, that is powerful and clear, rich in overtones, brilliant and full of character that can be compared to any mature 4/4 sized violin. This undamaged piece was worked over thoroughly in our atelier and is offered ready to express its preferable musical qualities, with immediate response.
