French violin by Ch.J.B. Collin-Mézin

This French violin by Collin-Mézin was made around 1910 in Mirecourt. The violin bears an Antonius Stradivarius label with a monogram C.M. (Collin Mezin) and is further signed No 348. The model is highly arched and after Antonius Stradivarius. The top is made of medium grained spruce, the two piece back of wide flamed maple. The rich varnish is partially textured, mainly on top. This interesting violin is despite a minor f-wing repair at the bass soundhole undamaged and in fine condition. The sound is huge, of excellent power, mature and dark in character. This Collin-Mezin violin projects very easily and has a fine and well balanced tone.
