Silent violin from France around 1900

This fine practice violin came to us from a professional musician and dates back to the end of the 19th century in France, probably Mirecourt. Silent violins which hail from that period and are of such perfect quality are extremely rare, and there is good reason to think that this instrument of unknown provenance may well have come from one of the major Mirecourt ateliers of the day. The scroll is large and gracefully carved; the body made of birdseye maple, the premium dark orange-brown varnish has developed a wonderful patina. It has been professionally restored and we offer it in outstanding condition, ready to play.
