French violin by J.T.L., Mirecourt

This top quality French violin was built approx. 1930 in the workshops of Jérôme Thibouville-Lamy (J.T.L.) in Mirecourt, the well-known center of violin making in the Vosges mountains of France. It is an instrument of J.T.L.'s "Geronimo Grandini senior" top series and bears the appropriate label. The violin introduces the typical J.T.L. style with a wide body and a luminous orange-brown varnish. The deeply flamed maple back and the delicately carved scroll provide a beautiful, elegant appearance. This undamaged French violin is preserved in near mint condition and was completely worked-over in our atelier and is in very good, crackfree condition, immediately ready to play. We highly recommend its clear, strong voice, that is of mature character, resonant and rich in overtones.
